Psalm 75

God Will Judge with Equity

1 We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!
For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near.

2 "When I choose the 1 proper time,
I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved;
I set up its pillars firmly. Selah
4 "I said to the boastful, 'Do not deal boastfully,'
And to the wicked, a 'Do not 2 lift up the horn.
5 Do not lift up your horn on high;
Do not speak with 3 a stiff neck.' "

6 For exaltation comes neither from the east
Nor from the west nor from the south.
7 But b God is the Judge:
c He puts down one,
And exalts another.
8 For d in the hand of the LORD there is a cup,
And the wine is red;
It is fully mixed, and He pours it out;
Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth
Drain and drink down.

9 But I will declare forever,
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 "All e the 4 horns of the wicked I will also cut off,
But f the horns of the righteous shall be g exalted."
