For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 aWe praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity.
3 When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.b
4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.c
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.’ ”
6 No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.
7 It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
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 As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,
