For the leader. Set to "Do Not Destroy!"A psalm of Asaf. A song: We give thanks to you, God, we give thanks; your name is near, people tell of your wonders.
"At the time of my own choice, I will dispense justice fairly.
When the earth quakes, with all living on it, it is I who hold its support-pillars firm."(Selah)
To the boastful I say, "Do not boast!"and to the wicked, "Don't flaunt your strength!
Don't flaunt your strength so proudly; don't speak arrogantly, with your nose in the air!
For you will not be raised to power by those in the east, the west or the desert;
since God is the judge; and it is he who puts down one and lifts up another.
In ADONAI's hand there is a cup of wine, foaming, richly spiced; when he pours it out, all the wicked of the earth will drain it, drinking it to the dregs."
But I will always speak out, singing praises to the God of Ya'akov.
I will break down the strength of the wicked, but the strength of the righteous will be raised up.
