Psalms 75

Psalms 75

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
1We give thanks to thee, O God; we give thanks;
we call on thy name and recount#75.1 Syr Compare Gk: Heb and near is thy name. They recount thy wondrous deeds.
2At the set time which I appoint
I will judge with equity.
3When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants,
it is I who keep steady its pillars. 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;
and 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 for ever,
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10All the horns of the wicked he#75.10 Heb I will cut off,
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
