Psalm 75
New American Standard Bible►► 

God Humbles the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

For the music director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

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

For Your name is near;

People declare Your wondrous works.

2“When I select an appointed time,

It is I who judge fairly.

3“The earth and all who inhabit it [b]are unsteady;

It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah

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

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

5Do not lift up your horn on high,

Do not speak with insolent [c]pride.’”

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

Nor from the [d]desert comes exaltation;

7But God is the Judge;

He puts down one and exalts another.

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

It is [e]well mixed, and He pours out of this;

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

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

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10And [f]He will cut off all the horns of the wicked,

But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.

[a] PSALM 75Title Lit Do Not Destroy
[b] 3 Lit totter
[c] 5 Lit neck
[d] 6 Or mountainous desert
[e] 8 Lit full of mixture
[f] 10 Heb I
