God Will Judge with Equity
To the choirmaster: according to #See Ps. 57, title Do Not Destroy. #See Ps. 50, titleA Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
1We give thanks to you, O God;
we give thanks, for your name is #Ps. 145:18near.
We#75:1 Hebrew They recount your wondrous deeds.
2“At #Dan. 8:19; Hab. 2:3; See Ps. 102:13 the set time that I appoint
I will judge #Ps. 17:2with equity.
3When the earth #Isa. 24:19 totters, and all its inhabitants,
it is I who keep steady its #1 Sam. 2:8pillars. Selah
4I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
and to the wicked, #ver. 10; Zech. 1:21‘Do not lift up your horn;
5do not lift up your horn on high,
or speak with haughty neck.’”
6For not from the east or from the west
and not from the wilderness comes #See Ps. 3:3lifting up,
7but it is #See Ps. 50:6 God who executes judgment,
1 Sam. 2:7; Dan. 2:21 putting down one and lifting up another.
8 # See Job 21:20 For in the hand of the Lord there is #Ps. 11:6 a cup
with foaming wine, #Prov. 23:30 well mixed,
and he pours out from it,
and all the wicked of the earth
shall #Ps. 73:10drain it down to the dregs.
9But I will declare it forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
Jer. 48:25 All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
# ver. 4; Ps. 89:17; 112:9; 1 Sam. 2:1 but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
