|The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob|
|For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.|
| ||IN Judah is God known:|
His name is great in Israel.
| ||In Salem also is his tabernacle, 1|
And his dwelling-place 2 in Zion.
| ||There he brake the arrows 3 of the bow;|
The shield, and the sword, and the battle. [Selah
| ||Glorious art thou and excellent,|
From 4 the mountains of prey.
| ||The stouthearted are made a spoil,|
They have slept their sleep;
And none of the men of might have found their hands.
| ||At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob,|
Both chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
| ||Thou, even thou, art to be feared;|
And who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
| ||Thou didst cause sentence to be heard from heaven;|
The earth feared, and was still,
| ||When God arose to judgment,|
To save all the meek of the earth. [Selah
| ||Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee:|
The residue of wrath shalt thou gird 5 upon thee.
| ||Vow, and pay unto Jehovah your God:|
Let all that are round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
| ||He will cut off the spirit of princes:|
He is terrible to the kings of the earth.
