Psalms Chapter 75 |
1For the leader; al tashheth.
A psalm of Asaph, a song.
2We praise You, O God;
we praise You;
Your presence is near;
men tell of Your wondrous deeds.
3“At the time I choose,
I will give judgment equitably.
4Earth and all its inhabitants dissolve;
it is I who keep its pillars firm. Selah.
5To wanton men I say, ‘Do not be wanton!’
to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns!’”
6Do not lift your horns up high
in vainglorious bluster.
7For what lifts a man comes not from the east
or the west or the wilderness;
8for God it is who gives judgment;
He brings down one man, He lifts up another.
9There is a cup in the Lord’s hand
with foaming wine fully mixed;
from this He pours;
all the wicked of the earth drink,
draining it to the very dregs.
10As for me, I will declare forever,
I will sing a hymn to the God of Jacob.
11“All the horns of the wicked I will cut;
but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.”
