1To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme or song committed toAsaph. We will prayse thee, O God, we will prayse thee, for thy Name is neere: therefore they will declare thy wonderous workes. 2When I shall take a conuenient time, I will iudge righteously. 3The earth and all the inhabitantes thereof are dissolued: but I will establish the pillars of it. Selah. 4I saide vnto the foolish, Be not so foolish, and to the wicked, Lift not vp the horne. 5Lift not vp your horne on high, neither speake with a stiffe necke. 6For to come to preferment is neither from the East, nor from the West, nor from the South, 7But God is the iudge: he maketh lowe and he maketh hie. 8For in the hand of the Lord is a cup, and the wine is red: it is full mixt, and he powreth out of the same: surely all the wicked of the earth shall wring out and drinke the dregges thereof. 9But I will declare for euer, and sing prayses vnto the God of Iaakob. 10All the hornes of the wicked also will I breake: but the hornes of the righteous shalbe exalted.
