«For the Chief Musician. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A Psalm by Asaph. A song
We give thanks to you, God. We give thanks, for your Name is near. Men tell about your wondrous works.
2
When I choose the appointed time, I will judge blamelessly.
3
The earth and all its inhabitants quake. I firmly hold its pillars. Selah.
4
I said to the arrogant, "Don't boast!" I said to the wicked, "Don't lift up the horn.
5
Don't lift up your horn on high. Don't speak with a stiff neck."
6
For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor yet from the south, comes exaltation.
7
But God is the judge. He puts down one, and lifts up another.
8
For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup, full of foaming wine mixed with spices. He pours it out. Indeed the wicked of the earth drink and drink it to its very dregs.
9
But I will declare this forever: I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10
I will cut off all the horns of the wicked, but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
