1In Judah is God known; *
his Name is great in Israel.
2At Salem is his tabernacle, *
and his dwelling is in Zion.
3There he broke the flashing arrows, *
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of battle.
4How glorious you are! *
more splendid than the everlasting mountains!
5The strong of heart have been despoiled;
they sink into sleep; *
none of the warriors can lift a hand.
6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, *
both horse and rider lie stunned.
7What terror you inspire! *
who can stand before you when you are angry?
8From heaven you pronounced judgment; *
the earth was afraid and was still;
9When God rose up to judgment *
and to save all the oppressed of the earth.
10Truly, wrathful Edom will give you thanks, *
and the remnant of Hamath will keep your feasts.
11Make a vow to the LORD your God and keep it; *
let all around him bring gifts to him who is worthy
to be feared.
12He breaks the spirit of princes, *
and strikes terror in the kings of the earth.
Collect of the Day – The Second Sunday in Lent
O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
