Psalms 76
New Living Translation

For the choir director: A psalm of Asaph. A song to be accompanied by stringed instruments.

76God is honored in Judah; his name is great in Israel.

2Jerusalem[1] is where he lives; Mount Zion is his home.

3There he has broken the fiery arrows of the enemy, the shields and swords and weapons of war. Interlude

4You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains[2].

5Our boldest enemies have been plundered. They lie before us in the sleep of death. No warrior could lift a hand against us.

6At the blast of your breath, O God of Jacob, their horses and chariots lay still.

7No wonder you are greatly feared! Who can stand before you when your anger explodes?

8From heaven you sentenced your enemies; the earth trembled and stood silent before you.

9You stand up to judge those who do evil, O God, and to rescue the oppressed of the earth. Interlude

10Human defiance only enhances your glory, for you use it as a weapon[3].

11Make vows to the Lord your God, and keep them. Let everyone bring tribute to the Awesome One.

12For he breaks the pride of princes, and the kings of the earth fear him.



[1] Psalms 76:2Hebrew Salem, another name for Jerusalem
[2] Psalms 76:4As in Greek version; Hebrew reads than mountains filled with beasts of prey
[3] Psalms 76:10The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
