Psalm 076

Psalm 76

1    In Judah’s land God is well known,

          his name’s in Isr’el great:

2    In Salem is his tabernacle,

          in Sion is his seat.

3    There arrows of the bow he brake,

          the shield, the sword, the war.

4    More glorious thou than hills of prey,

          more excellent art far.

5    Those that were stout of heart are spoil’d,

          they slept their sleep outright;

     And none of those their hands did find,

          that were the men of might.

6    When thy rebuke, O Jacob’s God,

          had forth against them past,

     Their horses and their chariots both

          were in a dead sleep cast.

7    Thou, Lord, ev’n thou art he that should

          be fear’d; and who is he

     That may stand up before thy sight,

          if once thou angry be?

8    From heav’n thou judgment caus’d be heard;

          the earth was still with fear,

9    When God to judgment rose, to save

          all meek on earth that were.

10   Surely the very wrath of man

          unto thy praise redounds:

     Thou to the remnant of his wrath

          wilt set restraining bounds.

11   Vow to the Lord your God, and pay:

          all ye that near him be,

     Bring gifts and presents unto him;

          for to be fear’d is he.

12   By him the sp’rits shall be cut off

          of those that princes are:

     Unto the kings that are on earth

          he fearful doth appear.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
