Psalms 75

Psalm 75

For the leader; al tashheth. A psalm of Asaph, a song.

We praise you, God, we praise you:
we would call on your name and declare your wonders.

“At the time I choose,
I will judge fairly.
Though earth melt and all her inhabitants,
it is I who keep steady her pillars.” (Selah)
I say to the boasters, “Boast not “;
to the wicked, “Lift not up your horn:
lift not your horn on high,
speak not boldly against the Rock.”

For not from east nor west,
not from desert nor mountains;
but God himself is the judge,
humbling one and exalting another.

In the hand of the  Lord is a cup
foaming wine, richly spiced.
Out of this he pours a draught,
and all the wicked of earth
must drain it down to the dregs.

But I will rejoice forever,
singing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 I will hew all the horns of the wicked,
but the horns of the just shall be lifted.
