75 (0) For the leader. Set to “Do Not Destroy!” A psalm of Asaf. A song:

(1) We give thanks to you, God, we give thanks;
your name is near, people tell of your wonders.

(2) “At the time of my own choice,
I will dispense justice fairly.
(3) When the earth quakes, with all living on it,
it is I who hold its support-pillars firm.” (Selah)

(4) To the boastful I say, “Do not boast!”
and to the wicked, “Don’t flaunt your strength!
(5) Don’t flaunt your strength so proudly;
don’t speak arrogantly, with your nose in the air!
(6) For you will not be raised to power
by those in the east, the west or the desert;
(7) since God is the judge; and it is he
who puts down one and lifts up another.
(8) In Adonai’s hand there is a cup of wine,
foaming, richly spiced;
when he pours it out, all the wicked of the earth
will drain it, drinking it to the dregs.”
10 (9) But I will always speak out,
singing praises to the God of Ya‘akov.
11 (10) I will break down the strength of the wicked,
but the strength of the righteous will be raised up.
