Representative Text

1 In Judah GOD is known: his name
is great in Israel:
2 In Salem his pavilion is:
in Zion He doth dwell:
3 There He the burning arrows brake,
the bow, shield, sword and war: (Selah.)
More glorious Thou than mounts of prey,
more excellent by far.

5 They that are stout of heart are spoil'd,
in sleep of death they fall:
The mighty could not find their hands
or pow'r to help at all.
6 O Thou of Jacob mighty God,
at thy rebuke and blast
The charioteers and horse also
the sleep of death are cast.

7 Thou, even Thou, art terrible,
whom all should greatly fear:
O who can stand before thy face,
if once thy wrath appear?
8 When Thou didst from the heav'ns on high
cause judgment to be heard;
The earth in awful silence stood,
exceedingly it fear'd;

9 When GOD his judgment to dispense
up as a judge arose,
The meek of all the earth to save
from all their mighty foes. (Selah.)
10 Assuredly the wrath of men
shall praises to Thee gain:
And the remainder of their wrath,
Thou surely wilt restrain.

11 Vow to the LORD your God, and pay
all ye that round Him are;
To Him who is most terrible,
your presents bring with fear.
12 The spirit that in princes is,
asunder cut will He:
And to the kings throughout the earth
He terrible will be.
