Thanksgiving for God's Wondrous Deeds
To the leader: Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
1We give thanks to you, O God;
we give thanks; your name is near.
People tell of your wondrous deeds.
2At the set time that I appoint
I will judge with equity.
3When the earth totters, with all its inhabitants,
it is I who keep its pillars steady. Selah
4I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,”
and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horn;
5do not lift up your horn on high,
or speak with insolent neck.”
6For not from the east or from the west
and not from the wilderness comes lifting up;
7but it is God who executes judgment,
putting down one and lifting up another.
8For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup
with foaming wine, well mixed;
he will pour a draught from it,
and all the wicked of the earth
shall drain it down to the dregs.
9But I will rejoice#75.9 Gk: Heb declare forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
