1People in Judah know God. People in Israel respect God’s name. 2God’s temple is in Salem. God’s house is on Mount Zion. 3In that place, God shattered the bows and arrows, shields, swords, and other weapons of war. selah 4God, you are glorious coming back from the hills where you defeated your enemies. 5Those soldiers thought they were strong. But now they lie dead in the fields. Their bodies are stripped of all they owned. None of those strong soldiers could defend themselves. 6The God of Jacob yelled at those soldiers, and that army with chariots and horses fell dead. 7God, you are awesome! No person can stand against you when you are angry. 8- 9The Lord stood as judge and announced his decision. God saved the humble people of the land. From heaven he gave the decision. The whole earth was silent and afraid. 10God, people respect you when you punish evil people. You show your anger, and the survivors become stronger. 11People, you made promises to the Lord your God. Now, give him what you promised. People in every place fear and respect God. And they will bring gifts to him. 12God defeats great leaders. All the kings on earth fear him.
