It’s Saturday, so it’s time for a Psalm! Let’s read and share together.
Psalm 76 (GNT)
God the Victor
1 God is known in Judah; his name is honored in Israel.
2 He has his home in Jerusalem; he lives on Mount Zion.
3 There he broke the arrows of the enemy, their shields and swords, yes, all their weapons.
4 How glorious you are, O God! How majestic, as you return from the mountains where you defeated your foes.
5 Their brave soldiers have been stripped of all they had and now are sleeping the sleep of death; all their strength and skill was useless.
6 When you threatened them, O God of Jacob, the horses and their riders fell dead.
7 But you, Lord, are feared by all. No one can stand in your presence when you are angry.
8 You made your judgment known from heaven; the world was afraid and kept silent,
9 when you rose up to pronounce judgment, to save all the oppressed on earth.
10 Human anger only results in more praise for you; those who survive the wars will keep your festivals.
11 Give the Lord your God what you promised him; bring gifts to him, all you nearby nations. God makes everyone fear him; 12 he humbles proud princes and terrifies great kings.
