Psalms Chapter 76



1 (To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.) In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.

2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,

9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

Elizabeth Kirkley Best's Psalms Chapter 76 comment on 3/15/2015, 7:23am...

One of my favorite verses in learning God 's ways is: 0 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain. It takes knowledge of this verse to understand the diverse happenings at the time of the crucifixion: the Jews were anointed and appointed priests of Israel, a 'nation of priests ' and yet they cry out for Messiah to be crucified. God takes the wrath of man, and turns it into a sacrificial offering ordained from the beginning. The Jews cry, "His blood be on us and on our children " and God turns it to 2000 years of preservation behind the blood covered lintels of a door at passover: they suffered and died but did not disappear as a people. They obtain salvation salvation is of the Jews but in a suspended state having declared the acceptance of the blood of the lamb on them and their children in wrath, because of unbelief, and are held in slumber or what Tyndale called 'disquietness ' until the fullness of all things when their faith becomes whole. We likewise sin still yet in grace he turns it to our good: the wrath of man praises God. Wrath praises God as the devil overplays his hand, and the antithesis to the things of God, becomes the declaration of his plan and his way, his love for mankind. It is an essential 'way of God ', triumphing over the limited wisdom of man.
