Declaring the Lord's majesty
||In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
||In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
||There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
||Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
||The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
||At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
||Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
||Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
||When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
||Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
An exhortation to reverent service
||Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
||He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
