Psalms 75:1-10

To the director. “Do not bring to ruin.”* A melody. Of A′saph.+ A song. 75  We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks to you,+ And your name is near.+ Men have to declare your wondrous works.+   “For I proceeded to take a set time;+ I myself began judging with uprightness.+   The earth and all its inhabitants being dissolved,+ It was I that adjusted its pillars.”+ Se′lah.   I said to the foolish ones: “Do not be foolish,”+ And to the wicked ones: “Do not exalt the horn.+   Do not exalt YOUR horn on high. Do not speak with an arrogant neck.+   For neither from the east* nor from the west, Nor from the south* is there an exalting.   For God is the judge.+ This one he abases, and that one he exalts.+   For there is a cup in the hand of Jehovah,+ And the wine is foaming, it is full of mixture. And he will surely pour out its dregs from it; All the wicked ones of the earth will drain [them] out, drink [them].”+   But as for me, I shall tell [of it] to time indefinite; I will make melody to the God of Jacob.+ 10  And all the horns of the wicked ones I shall cut down.+ The horns of the righteous one will be exalted.+
