When God rose to judgement

Psa 76:7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
Psa 76:8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
Psa 76:9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

“The earth feared and was still when God arose to judgment, to save all the meek”. We are not often afraid of God, because we depend on His love and tenderness. But the earth fears and stands still when He comes to Judge. What if we did not number ourselves among the “meek of the earth”? What if we were the object of His anger? That would be something to fear.
