|Psalms 75 |
1 We give thanks to you, O God, to you do we give thanks; for your wondrous works declare that your name is near.
2 "When I choose the proper time, I will judge uprightly.
3 When the earth and all its inhabitants melt and are dissolved, I will uphold its pillars. Selah.
4 I said to the arrogant,'Do not deal arrogantly;' and to the wicked, 'do not lift not up your horn' [a symbol of strength or power].
5 Do not lift up your horn on high, do not speak with an outstretched neck [arrogance].'"
6 For exaltation does not come from the east nor from the west nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge! He puts down one and lifts up another.
8 For there is a cup in the hand of the LORD, and the wine is red [His wrath] and fully mixed; he pours out of it and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it out and drink its dregs.
9 But I will declare forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 "All the horns of the wicked I will cut off; but the horns [symbold of strength or power] of the righteous shall be exalted."
