1 To the Overseer with stringed instruments. -- A Psalm of Asaph. -- A Song. In Judah is God known, in Israel His name is great. 2 And His tabernacle is in Salem, And His habitation in Zion. 3 There he hath shivered arrows of a bow, Shield, and sword, and battle. Selah.
4 Bright art Thou, honourable above hills of prey. 5 Spoiled themselves have the mighty of heart, They have slept their sleep, And none of the men of might found their hands. 6 From Thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both rider and horse have been fast asleep.
7 Thou, fearful art Thou, And who doth stand before Thee, Since Thou hast been angry! 8 From heaven Thou hast sounded judgment, Earth hath feared, and hath been still, 9 In the rising of God to judgment, To save all the humble of earth. Selah. 10 For the fierceness of man praiseth Thee, The remnant of fierceness Thou girdest on.
