Psalm 75

For the choir director; al tashcheth; a psalm by Asaph; a song.

We give thanks to you, O Elohim; we give thanks.
    You are present, and your miracles confirm that.

When I choose the right time,
    I will judge fairly.
When the earth and everyone who lives on it begin to melt,
    I will make its foundations as solid as rock. Selah
I said to those who brag, “Don’t brag,”
    and to wicked people,
        “Don’t raise your weapons.
        Don’t raise your weapons so proudly
            or speak so defiantly.”

The authority to reward someone does not come
    from the east,
        from the west,
            or even from the wilderness.
Elohim alone is the Shophet.
    He punishes one person and rewards another.
A cup is in Yahweh’s hand.
    (Its foaming wine is thoroughly mixed with spices.)
    He will empty it,
    and all the wicked people on earth
        will have to drink every last drop.

But I will speak about your miracles forever.
    I will make music to praise the Elohim of Jacob.
10 I will destroy all the weapons of wicked people,
    but the weapons of righteous people will be raised proudly.
