We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near;1 men tell of your wonderful deeds.22
You say, "I choose the appointed time;3 it is I who judge uprightly.43
When the earth and all its people quake,5 it is I who hold its pillars6 firm. "Selah"
To the arrogant7 I say, 'Boast no more,'8 and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.95
Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.10' "
No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man.
But it is God who judges:11 He brings one down, he exalts another.12
