Chapter 75

The prophet praiseth God, and promiseth to execute justice. (To the Chief Musician, Al-taschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.)

1)Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks; for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.

2)When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.

3)The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved; I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.

4)I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly; and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn;

5)Lift not up your horn on high; speak not with a stiff neck.

6)For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

7)But God is the judge; he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

8)For 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.

9)But I will declare forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10)All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
