To the chief musician, on Neginoth, a psalm or song of Asaph
1 IN Judah God is known: his name
is great in Israel.
2 In Salem also is his tent:
in Sion he doth dwell,
3 There brake he th’ arrows of the bow,
the shield, sword, and battle. Selah.
4 Illustrious thou art, thou dost
the mounts of prey excel.
5 They that are stout of heart are spoil’d,
they slept their sleep profound:
and of the men of might there is
none that their hands have found.
6 Of Jacob o thou mighty God,
as thy rebuke out past,
the chariot also, and the horse
in a dead sleep are cast.
7 Thou ev’n thou art to be feared,
and who is it before
thy prefence that can stand, when as
that thou art angry sore?
8 Thou diddest cause for to be heard
judgment from heav’n above:
the earth exceedingly did fear,
also it did not move.
9 When as the mighty God arose,
to th’ execution
of judgment, to save all the meek
that are the earth upon. Selah.
10 Assuredly unto thy praise,
shall turn the wrath of man:
and the remainder of the earth
also thou shalt restrain.
11 Vow, and pay to the Lord your God;
that him surround all ye,
and bring ye presents unto him,
that feared ought to be.
12 The spirit that in Princes is,
asunder cut he shall:
unto the Kings on earth that be,
dreadful he is withal.
