1We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. 2You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. 3When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.#75:3 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here. 4To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.#75:4 Horns here symbolize strength; also in verses 5 and 10. 5Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.’ ” 6No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves. 7It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
