Psalms 75

Psalm 75
God Judges the Wicked
For the choir director: “Do Not Destroy.” A psalm of Asaph.#1Ch 16:5,7 A song.
1We give thanks to you, God;
we give thanks to you, for your name is near.#Dt 4:7; Ps 145:18; Is 55:6; Lm 3:57
People tell about your wondrous works.#Ps 26:7
2“When I choose a time,
I will judge fairly.#Ps 9:8; 96:10
3When the earth and all its inhabitants shake,
I am the one who steadies its pillars.#1Sm 2:8; Ps 46:6; Is 24:19Selah
4I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn.#Pr 27:1; Jr 9:23
5Do not lift up your horn against heaven#75:5 Lit horn to the height
or speak arrogantly.’”#1Sm 2:3; Ps 94:4
6Exaltation does not come
from the east, the west, or the desert,
7for God is the Judge:
He brings down one and exalts another.#1Sm 2:7–8; Ps 50:6; Lk 1:52–53
8For there is a cup in the Lord’s hand,
full of wine blended with spices, and he pours from it.
All the wicked of the earth will drink,
draining it to the dregs.#Is 51:17,22; Jr 25:15–17
9As for me, I will tell about him forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.#Ps 9:2; 18:49; 81:1
10“I will cut off all the horns of the wicked,#Jr 48:25
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”#Ps 89:17; 92:10; 148:14
