Who Can Stand Before You?

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1In Judah God is known;

his name is great in Israel.

2His abode has been established in Salem,

his dwelling place in Zion.

3There he broke the flashing arrows,

the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah

4Glorious are you, more majestic

than the mountains full of prey.

5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;

they sank into sleep;

all the men of war

were unable to use their hands.

6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,

both rider and horse lay stunned.

7But you, you are to be feared!

Who can stand before you

when once your anger is roused?

8From the heavens you uttered judgment;

the earth feared and was still,

9when God arose to establish judgment,

to save all the humble of the earth. Selah

10Surely the wrath of man shall praise you;

the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.

11Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;

let all around him bring gifts

to him who is to be feared,

12who cuts off the spirit of princes,

who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
