1 In Judah God is known; ♦
his name is great in Israel.
2 At Salem is his tabernacle, ♦
and his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There broke he the flashing arrows of the bow, ♦
the shield, the sword and the weapons of war.
4 In the light of splendour you appeared, ♦
glorious from the eternal mountains.
5 The boastful were plundered; they have slept their sleep; ♦
none of the warriors can lift their hand.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, ♦
both horse and chariot fell stunned.
7 Terrible are you in majesty: ♦
who can stand before your face when you are angry?
8 You caused your judgement to be heard from heaven; ♦
the earth trembled and was still,
9 When God arose to judgement, ♦
to save all the meek upon earth.
10 You crushed the wrath of the peoples ♦
and bridled the wrathful remnant.
let all who are round about him bring gifts
to him that is worthy to be feared.
12 He breaks down the spirit of princes ♦
and strikes terror in the kings of the earth.
