Psalm 76 unfolds as a poetic hymn glorifying God's unmatched might and just judgments. With vivid imagery, the psalmist describes God's dwelling in Zion, portraying Him as an awe-inspiring warrior who shatters the weapons of enemies and stands as an eternal stronghold for the righteous. The psalm serves as a reminder that God’s might ultimately delivers justice, silencing the wicked and defending the vulnerable. With a blend of reverence and praise, Psalm 76 reinforces faith in God's sovereign rule and unfailing justice.

Psalms 76

1  (To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.) In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.

2  In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

3  There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

4  Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

5  The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

6  At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

7  Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

8  Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,

9  When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10  Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

11  Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

12  He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
