Psalm 75
New International VersionKing James Bible
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.1To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity.2When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.3The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.4I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.'"5Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.6For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.7But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
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 in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,9But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises 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."10All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
