Yahweh has broken the staff of the wicked,
    the scepter of rulers.
        They struck the people with fury,
            with blows that didn’t stop.
        They ruled nations in anger,
            persecuting them without restraint.
The whole earth rests and is peaceful.
    It breaks out into shouts of joy.
