Psalm 75
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1We praise you, God! We praise you —your presence draws near— as we declare your wonderful deeds.1We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds.
2"At the time that I choose I will judge the righteous. 2“At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity.
3While the earth and all its inhabitants melt away, it is I who keep its pillars firm." Interlude3When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars. Selah
4I will say to the proud, "Don't brag," and to the wicked, "Don't vaunt your strength. 4I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn;
5Don't use your strength to fight heaven or speak from stubborn arrogance." 5do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck.’”
6For exaltation comes not from the east, the west, or the wilderness,6For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up,
7since God is the judge. This one he will debase or that one he will exalt.7but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.
8For there is a cup in the hand of the LORD, foaming with well-mixed wine that he will pour out, leaving only the dregs, from which all the wicked of the earth will drink.8For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed, and he pours out from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs.
9But as for me, I will declare forever, singing praise to the God of Jacob.9But I will declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10I will cut down the strength of the wicked, but the strength of the righteous will be lifted up.10All the horns of the wicked I will cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
