1 To the overseer upon the stringed instrument: chanting to Asaph song. In Judah was God known: great his name in Israel. 2 And his booth shall be in peace, and his dwelling in Zion. 3 There he broke the lightnings of the bow, the shield and the sword, and war. Silence
4 Thou art light, being magnified from the mountains of fresh foliage. 5 The mighty of heart were spoiled, they slumbered their sleep: and all the men of strength found not their hands. 6 From thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, the chariot and the horse lay in a deep sleep.
7 Thou art feared, thou: and who shall stand before thee from the time of thine anger? 8 From the heavens thou didst cause judgment to be heard; the earth feared and rested. 9 In God's rising up to judgment, to save all the poor of the earth. Silence. 10 For the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath thou wilt gird up.
11 Vow, ye, and repay to Jehovah your God: all being round about him shall bring a gift for fear. 12 He will cut off the spirit of leaders, being terrible to the kings of the earth.
