Scottish Psalter: Psalm 76

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

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

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.
