God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

1 We 1give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is 2near; Men declare 3Your wondrous works.
2 "When I select an 4appointed time, It is I who 5judge with equity.
3 "The 6earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its 7pillars. Selah.
4 "I said to the boastful, 'Do not boast,' And to the wicked, '8Do not lift up the horn;
5 Do not lift up your horn on high, 9Do not speak with insolent pride.' "
6 For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the 10desert comes exaltation;
7 But 11God is the Judge; He 12puts down one and exalts another.
8 For a 13cup is in the hand of the LORD, and the wine foams; It is 14well mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and 15drink down its dregs.
9 But as for me, I will 16declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 And all the 17horns of the wicked He will cut off, But 18the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
