God’s Name Is Great in Israel
For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel. 2
So His tabernacle is in Salem;
His dwelling place is in Zion. 3
There He broke the flaming arrows,
The shield and the sword and the battle. Selah.
You are shining,
Majestic from the mountains of prey. 5
The stouthearted were plundered,
They sank into sleep;
And none of the warriors could use his hands. 6
At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both chariot rider and horse slumbered into a deep sleep. 7
But You, You are fearsome;
And who can stand in Your presence when once You are angry?
You made Your cause to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared and was quiet 9
When God arose to judgment,
To save all the humble of the earth. Selah. 10
For the wrath of man shall praise You;
With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.
Make vows to Yahweh your God and pay them;
Let all who are around Him bring gifts to the Fearsome One. 12
He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is feared by the kings of the earth.
