Psalm 75
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1We give thanks and praise to You, O God, we give thanks,

For Your [wonderful works declare that Your] [a]name is near;

People declare Your wonders.

2“When I select an appointed time,

I will judge with equity,” [says the LORD].

3“The earth and all the inhabitants of it melt [in tumultuous times].

It is I who will steady its pillars. Selah.

4“I said to the arrogant, ‘Do not boast;’

And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn [of self-glorification].

5‘Do not lift up your [defiant and aggressive] horn on high,

Do not speak with a stiff neck.’”

6For not from the east, nor from the west,

Nor from the desert comes exaltation.

7But God is the Judge;

He puts down one and lifts up another.

8For a cup [of His wrath] is in the hand of the LORD, and the wine foams;

It is well mixed and fully spiced, and He pours out from it;

And all the wicked of the earth must drain it and drink down to its dregs.

9But as for me, I will declare it and rejoice forever;

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10All the horns of the wicked He will cut off,

But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.

[a] 1 See note Deut 12:5.
