THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 76 ©
The prophet gives God thanks for His gracious presence, manifested to His people by a wonderful deliverance from insolent and potent enemies, whose insolence, power and fierceness God has brought to nothing by His wrath and zeal; exhorting thereupon to adore and to praise God.
To the chief 1Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or 2Song of Asaph.
IN Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
In 3Salem also is his 4tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
5There brake he the 6arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. 7Selah.
Thou art more glorious and excellent than the 8mountains of prey.
The 9stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their 10sleep: and 11none of the men of might have found their hands.
At thy 12rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the 13chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight 14when once thou art angry?
Thou 15didst cause judgment to be heard from 16heaven; 17the earth feared, and was still,
When God arose to judgment, to save all the 18meek of the earth. Selah.
Surely the wrath of man shall 19praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou 20restrain.
21Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be 22round about him bring 23presents unto him 24that ought to be feared.
He shall 25cut off the spirit of 26princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
