Psalm 75
New International VersionInternational Standard Version
1For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A psalm of Asaph. A song. We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds.1We praise you, God! We praise you —your presence draws near— as we declare your wonderful deeds.
2You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity.2"At the time that I choose I will judge the righteous.
3When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.3While the earth and all its inhabitants melt away, it is I who keep its pillars firm." Interlude
4To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.4I will say to the proud, "Don't brag," and to the wicked, "Don't vaunt your strength.
5Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.'"5Don't use your strength to fight heaven or speak from stubborn arrogance."
6No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.6For exaltation comes not from the east, the west, or the wilderness,
7It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.7since God is the judge. This one he will debase or that one he will exalt.
8In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.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.
9As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,9But as for me, I will declare forever, singing praise to the God of Jacob.
10who says, "I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up."10I will cut down the strength of the wicked, but the strength of the righteous will be lifted up.
