Psalm 75 To the Chief Musician; [set to the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Psalm of Asaph. A song. 75 1WE GIVE praise and thanks to You, O God, we praise and give thanks; Your wondrous works declare that Your [Q]Name is near and they who invoke Your Name rehearse Your wonders. 2When the proper time has come [for executing My judgments], I will judge uprightly [says the Lord]. 3When the earth totters, and all the inhabitants of it, it is I Who will poise and keep steady its pillars. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 4I said to the arrogant and boastful, Deal not arrogantly [do not boast]; and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn [of personal aggrandizement]. 5Lift not up your [aggressive] horn on high, speak not with a stiff neck and insolent arrogance. 6For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up. 7But God is the Judge! He puts down one and lifts up another. 8For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup [of His wrath], and the wine foams and is red, well mixed; and He pours out from it, and all the wicked of the earth must drain it and drink its dregs. 9But I will declare and rejoice forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10All the horns of the ungodly also will I cut off [says the Lord], but the horns of the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall be exalted.
