PSALM 75 God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous. For the choir director; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song. 75 1We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works. 2“When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity. 3“The earth and all who dwell in it [H]melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. [I]Selah. 4“I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,” And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn; 5Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent [J]pride.’ ” 6For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the [K]desert comes exaltation; 7But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. 8For a cup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams; It is [L]well mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs. 9But as for me, I will declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10And all the horns of the wicked [M]He will cut off, But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
