Psalm 75
Good News Translation

God the Judge+

1We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks to you!

We proclaim how great you are

and tell of+ the wonderful things you have done.

2“I have set a time for judgment,” says God,

“and I will judge with fairness.

3Though every living creature tremble

and the earth itself be shaken,

I will keep its foundations firm.

4I tell the wicked not to be arrogant;

5I tell them to stop their boasting.”

6Judgment does not come from the east or from the west,

from the north or from the south;+

7it is God who is the judge,

condemning some and acquitting others.

8The Lord holds a cup in his hand,

filled with the strong wine of his anger.

He pours it out, and all the wicked drink it;

they drink it down to the last drop.

9But I will never stop speaking of the God of Jacob

or singing praises to him.

10He will break the power of the wicked,

but the power of the righteous will be increased.
