Psalm 75

Thanksgiving for God’s Wondrous Deeds

To the leader: Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

We give thanks to you, O God;
    we give thanks; your name is near.
People tell of your wondrous deeds.(A)

At the set time that I appoint,
    I will judge with equity.
When the earth totters, with all its inhabitants,
    it is I who keep its pillars steady. Selah
I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,”
    and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horn;(B)
do not lift up your horn on high
    or speak with insolent neck.”(C)

For not from the east or from the west
    and not from the wilderness comes lifting up,(D)
but it is God who executes judgment,
    putting down one and lifting up another.(E)
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup
    with foaming wine, well mixed;
he will pour a draught from it,
    and all the wicked of the earth
    shall drain it down to the dregs.(F)
But I will rejoice[a] forever;
    I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.(G)

10 All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
    but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.(H)
