P82. Psalm 76: In Judah's land God is well known

1 In Judah’s land God is well known,
his name’s in Isr’el great:
2 In Salem is his tabernacle,
in Sion is his seat.

3 There arrows of the bow he brake,
the shield, the sword, the war.
4 More glorious thou than hills of prey,
more excellent art far.

5 Those that were stout of heart are spoil’d,
they slept their sleep outright;
And none of those their hands did find,
that were the men of might.

6 When thy rebuke, O Jacob’s God,
had forth against them past,
Their horses and their chariots both
were in a dead sleep cast.

7 Thou, Lord, ev’n thou art he that should
be fear’d; and who is he
That may stand up before thy sight,
if once thou angry be?

8 From heav’n thou judgment caus’d be heard;
the earth was still with fear,
9 When God to judgment rose, to save
all meek on earth that were.

10 Surely the very wrath of man
unto thy praise redounds:
Thou to the remnant of his wrath
wilt set restraining bounds.

11 Vow to the Lord your God, and pay:
all ye that near him be,
Bring gifts and presents unto him;
for to be fear’d is he.

12 By him the sp’rits shall be cut off
of those that princes are:
Unto the kings that are on earth
he fearful doth appear.
