In Judah God is known :
his name is great in Israel.
At Salem is his tabernacle :
and his dwelling is in Zion.
There he broke in pieces the flashing arrows of the bow :
the shield, the sword and the weapons of battle.
Radiant in light are you :
greater in majesty than the eternal hills.
The valiant were dumbfounded, they sleep their sleep :
and all the men of war have lost their strength.
At the blast of your voice, O God of Jacob :
both horse and chariot were cast asleep.
Terrible are you, Lord God :
and who may stand before you when you are angry?
You caused your sentence to be heard from heaven :
the earth feared and was still,
When God arose to judgement :
to save all the meek of the earth.
For you crushed the wrath of man :
you bridled the remnant of the wrathful.
O make vows to the Lord your God, and keep them :
let all around him bring gifts to him that is worthy to be feared.
For he cuts down the fury of princes :
and he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
