Psalm 75 RSV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. We give thanks to thee, O God; we give thanks; we call on thy name and recount thy wondrous deeds. 1 We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 At the set time which I appoint I will judge with equity. 2 You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly.
3 When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars. [Selah] 3 When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. "Selah"
4 I say to the boastful, "Do not boast," and to the wicked, "Do not lift up your horn; 4 To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.
5 do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with insolent neck." 5 Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.' "
6 For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up; 6 No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man.
7 but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another. 7 But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, with foaming wine, well mixed; and he will pour a draught from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs. 8 In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.
9 But I will rejoice for ever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 9 As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked he will cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. 10 I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
