{To the chief Musician.
'Destroy not.' A Psalm of Asaph: a Song.}
Unto thee we give thanks, O God, we give thanks;
and thy name is near: thy marvellous works declare it.
2
When I shall receive the assembly, I will judge with equity.
3
The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I have established its pillars.
Selah.
4
I said unto the boastful, Boast not;
and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5
Lift not up your horn on high;
speak not arrogantly with a [stiff] neck.
6
For not from the east nor from the west, nor yet from the south doth exaltation [come]:
7
For God is the judge;
he putteth down one and exalteth another.
8
For in the hand of Jehovah there is a cup, and it foameth with wine, it is full of mixture;
and he poureth out of the same;
yea, the dregs thereof shall all the wicked of the earth drain off, [and] drink.
9
But as for me, I will declare for ever;
I will sing psalms to the God of Jacob.
10
And all the horns of the wicked will I cut off;
[but] the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
