1We give thanks to You, God;
we give thanks to You, for Your name is near.
People tell about Your wonderful works. #Dt 4:7Ps 26:7|NoBook| 145:18

I will judge fairly. #Ps 9:8|NoBook| 96:10
3When the earth and all its inhabitants shake,
I am the One who steadies its pillars. #1Sm 2:8Ps 46:6Is 24:19Selah

and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn. #Pr 27:1Jr 9:23
5Do not lift up your horn against heaven
or speak arrogantly.’ ” #1Sm 2:3Ps 94:4

from the east, the west, or the desert,
7for God is the Judge:
He brings down one and exalts another. #1Sm 2:7-8Ps 50:6Lk 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 51:17Jr 25:15-17

I will sing praise to the God of Jacob. #Ps 9:2|NoBook| 18:49|NoBook| 81:1

but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.” #Ps 89:17|NoBook| 92:10|NoBook| 148:14
