Psalms 75

For the director of music. (To the tune of) "Do Not Destroy." A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 We give thanks to you, O God,
     we give thanks, for your Name is near;
     men tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 You say, "I choose the appointed time;
     it is I who judge uprightly.
3 When the earth and all its people quake,
     it is I who hold its pillars firm.
4 To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,'
     and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
     do not speak with outstretched neck.'"
6 No one from the east or the west
     or from the desert can exalt a man.
7 But it is God who judges:
     He brings one down, he exalts another.
8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
     full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
     drink it down to its very dregs.
9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
     I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
