Psalm 75

God Judges with Equity

For the choir director. [†]Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph. [†]A Song.

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

For Your name is near;

Men recount Your wondrous deeds.

2“For I select an appointed time,

It is I who judge with equity.

3The earth and all who dwell in it [†]melt;

It is I who have firmly set its pillars. [†]Selah.

4I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’

And to the wicked, ‘Do not raise up the horn;

5Do not raise up your horn on high,

Nor speak with insolent [†]pride.’”

6For one’s rising up does not come from the east, nor from the west,

And not from the [†]desert;

7But God is the Judge;

He puts down one and raises up another.

8For a cup is in the hand of Yahweh, and the wine foams;

It is full of His mixture, and He pours from this;

Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs.

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

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10And all the horns of the wicked I will cut off,

But the horns of the righteous will be raised up.
