For the music director; to be accompanied by stringed instruments; a psalm of Asaph, a song.
76:1 God has revealed himself in Judah;
in Israel his reputation is great.
76:2 He lives in Salem;
he dwells in Zion.
76:3 There he shattered the arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the rest of the weapons of war. (Selah)
76:4 You shine brightly and reveal your majesty,
as you descend from the hills where you killed your prey.
76:5 The bravehearted were plundered;
they “fell asleep.”
All the warriors were helpless.
76:6 At the sound of your battle cry, O God of Jacob,
both rider and horse “fell asleep.”
76:7 You are awesome! Yes, you!
Who can withstand your intense anger?
76:8 From heaven you announced what their punishment would be.
The earth was afraid and silent
76:9 when God arose to execute judgment,
and to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Selah)
76:10 Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise;
you reveal your anger in full measure.
76:11 Make vows to the LORD your God and repay them!
Let all those who surround him bring tribute to the awesome one!
76:12 He humbles princes;
the kings of the earth regard him as awesome.
