Psalm 75
New International VersionNew American Standard 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.1For the choir director; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song. We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works.
2You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity.2"When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity.
3When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.3"The earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah.
4To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.4"I said to the boastful, 'Do not boast,' And to the wicked, 'Do not lift up the horn;
5Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.'"5Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent pride.'"
6No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.6For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation;
7It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.7But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts 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 a cup is in the hand of the LORD, and the wine foams; It is well mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs.
9As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,9But as for me, I will declare it forever; 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."10And all the horns of the wicked He will cut off, But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
