God’s Name Is Great in Israel
For the choirmaster. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A song.
1God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.
His dwelling place in Zion.
3 There He shattered the flaming arrows,
the shield and sword and weapons of war.
4 You are resplendent with light,
more majestic than mountains filled with game.
5 The valiant lie plundered; they sleep their last sleep.
No men of might could lift a hand.
6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both horse and rider lie stunned.
7 You alone are to be feared.
When You are angry, who can stand before You?
8 From heaven You pronounced judgment,
and the earth feared and was still
9 when God rose up to judge,
to save all the lowly of the earth.
10 Even the wrath of man shall praise You;
with the survivors of wrath You will clothe Yourself. b
11 Make and fulfill your vows to the LORD your God;
let all the neighboring lands bring tribute
to Him who is to be feared.
12 He breaks the spirits of princes;
He is feared by the kings of the earth.
2 a That is, Jerusalem
10 b Or Surely Your wrath against men brings You praise, and the survivors of Your wrath will be restrained.
