ContextGod's Name is Great in Israel
1In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel. 2In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion. 3There broke he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah. 4You are more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey. 5The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands. 6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep. 7You, even you, are to be feared: and who may stand in your sight when once you are angry? 8You did cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still, 9When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah. 10Surely the wrath of man shall praise you: the remainder of wrath shall you restrain. 11Vow, and pay to the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents to him that ought to be feared. 12He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
