Israel’s God—Judge of All the Earth

To the leader: 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 everlasting mountains.

5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;

they sank into sleep;

none of the troops

was able to lift a hand.

6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,

both rider and horse lay stunned.

7But you indeed are awesome!

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 rose up to establish judgment,

to save all the oppressed of the earth.   Selah

10Human wrath serves only to praise you,

when you bind the last bit of your wrath around you.

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

let all who are around him bring gifts

to the one who is awesome,

12who cuts off the spirit of princes,

who inspires fear in the kings of the earth.
