PLXXVI. To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph

1 In Judah God is known: his name
Is great in Israel.
2 In Salem also is his tent:
In Sion he doth dwell.
3 He arrows of the bow there brake,
Shield, sword and battle too. Selah.
More bright and wondrous excellent
Than mounts of prey art thou.

5 They that are stout of heart are spoil'd,
They slept their sleep out-right:
And none of them have found their hands
That were the men of might.
6 O thou that art of Jacob God,
At thy rebuke out-past,
The chariot and the horse also
To sleep of death are cast.

7 Thou, even thou, art to be fear'd,
O who is he therefore,
When once thou angry art, that can
Thy presence stand before?
8 Thou didst out from the heav'ns above
Cause judgment to be heard;
The earth in awful silence stood
Exceedingly it fear'd.

9 When the great God himself arose
His judgment to dispence,
Of all the meek once of the earth
To be the safe defence. Selah.
10 Assuredly the wrath of man
Shall praises to thee gain:
And the remainder of their wrath
Thou surely shalt restrain.

11 Vow to the Lord your God, and pay
All that about him are;
And bring ye an oblation
To him that is our fear.
12 The spirit that in princes is
Asunder cut shall he:
Unto the kings on earth that are
He shall most dreadful be.
