Psalm 76 exalts Yahweh by comparing Him to the kings and leaders of the earth. When they assemble with flashing arrows and glittering swords and spears, God overwhelms them, and triumphs over them. Asaph then says that “the wrath of man shall praise you”, which seems confusing on its own, but in context, serves as a summary of Psalm 76. All the warring, ruling, and posturing of man, all his wrath, simply serves as a foil to highlight the glory of God. The mightiest triumph of man pales in comparison to the glory of God’s judgment, and so causes more praise to be given to the Almighty God who is to be feared.
