To the Director: To the tune of[a] “Do not Destroy!”
A psalm of Asaph. A song.
Praise to God for Justice
75 We praise you, God! We praise you[b]—your presence[c] draws near— as we declare your wonderful deeds.
2 “At the time that I choose I will judge the righteous.[d] 3 While the earth and all its inhabitants melt away, it is I who keep its pillars firm.” Interlude
4 I will say to the proud, “Don’t brag,” and to the wicked, “Don’t vaunt your strength.[e] 5 Don’t use your strength to fight heaven[f] or speak from stubborn arrogance.”[g] 6 For exaltation comes not from the east, the west, or the wilderness, 7 since God is the judge. This one he will debase or that one he will exalt. 8 For there is a cup in the hand of the Lord, foaming with well-mixed wine that he will pour out, leaving only the dregs, from which all the wicked of the earth will drink.
9 But as for me, I will declare forever, singing praise to the God of Jacob. 10 I will cut down the strength[h] of the wicked, but the strength[i] of the righteous will be lifted up.
