To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.
1
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2
When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3
The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it.
Selah.
4
I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5
Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7
But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8
For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red;
it is full of mixture;
and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9
But I will declare for ever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10
All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off;
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
