NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Psalms 75:1-10

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • God judges with fairness

    • The wicked to drink Jehovah’s cup (8)

To the director. Set to the melody “Do Not Bring to Ruin.” Of Aʹsaph.+ A song. 75  We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks to you; Your name is near,+ And people declare your wondrous works.   You say: “When I set a time, I judge with fairness.   When the earth and all its inhabitants were dissolved, It was I who kept its pillars firm.” (Selah)   I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,” And to the wicked, “Do not exalt your strength.*   Do not exalt your strength* up high Or speak with arrogance.   For exaltation does not come From the east or the west or the south.   For God is Judge.+ He puts one man down and exalts another.+   For there is a cup in Jehovah’s hand;+ The wine is foaming and is fully mixed. He will surely pour it out, And all the wicked of the earth will drink it, down to the dregs.”+   But as for me, I will proclaim it forever; I will sing praises* to the God of Jacob. 10  For he says: “I will cut off all the strength* of the wicked, But the strength* of the righteous will be exalted.”
