Scripture Reading

God the Victor

76 God is known in Judah;
    his name is honored in Israel.
He has his home in Jerusalem;
    he lives on Mount Zion.
There he broke the arrows of the enemy,
    their shields and swords, yes, all their weapons.

How glorious you are, O God!
    How majestic, as you return from the mountains
    where you defeated your foes.
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.
When you threatened them, O God of Jacob,
    the horses and their riders fell dead.

But you, Lord, are feared by all.
    No one can stand in your presence
    when you are angry.
You made your judgment known from heaven;
    the world was afraid and kept silent,
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.

Today’s Key Verse:  Psalm 76:11a

Give the LORD your God what you promised him.


Verse 11 speaks of making a vow to God. In what ways does your community of faith express its promises to God? What promises will you make to God today?


How glorious and majestic you are, O God! I praise you and honor your holy name and promise to serve you always. Amen.
