God Humbles the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

For the music director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

75 We (A)give thanks to You, God, we give thanks,
For Your name is (B)near;
People declare (C)Your wondrous works.
“When I select an (D)appointed time,
It is I who (E)judge fairly.
The (F)earth and all who inhabit it [b]are unsteady;
It is I who have firmly set its (G)pillars. Selah
I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
And to the wicked, ‘(H)Do not lift up the horn;
Do not lift up your horn on high,
(I)Do not speak with insolent [c]pride.’”

For not from the east, nor from the west,
Nor from the [d](J)desert comes exaltation;
But (K)God is the Judge;
He (L)puts down one and exalts another.
For a (M)cup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams;
It is [e](N)well mixed, and He pours out of this;
Certainly all the wicked of the earth must drain and (O)drink its dregs.

But as for me, I will (P)declare it forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 And [f]He will cut off all the (Q)horns of the wicked,
But (R)the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.

The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.

For the music director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

76 God is (S)known in Judah;
His name is (T)great in Israel.
His [g](U)tabernacle is in (V)Salem;
His (W)dwelling place also is in Zion.
There He (X)broke the [h]flaming arrows,
The shield, the sword, and the [i]weapons of war. Selah

You are resplendent,
[j]More majestic than the mountains of prey.
The (Y)stouthearted were plundered,
[k]They sank into sleep;
And none of the [l]warriors could use his hands.
At Your (Z)rebuke, God of Jacob,
Both [m](AA)rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
You, You indeed are (AB)to be feared,
And (AC)who may stand in Your presence, [n]once You are angry?

You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
The earth (AD)feared and was still
When God (AE)arose to judgment,
To save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10 For the [o](AF)wrath of mankind shall praise You;
You will encircle Yourself with a remnant of wrath.

11 (AG)Make vows to the Lord your God and (AH)fulfill them;
All who are around Him are to (AI)bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.
12 He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is [p](AJ)feared by the kings of the earth.
