We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near;1 people tell of your wonderful deeds.22
You say, "I choose the appointed time;3 it is I who judge with equity.43
When the earth and all its people quake,5 it is I who hold its pillars6 firm.a4
To the arrogant7 I say, 'Boast no more,'8 and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.b95
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 themselves.
It is God who judges:11 He brings one down, he exalts another.128
In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed13 with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.149
As for me, I will declare15 this forever; I will sing16 praise to the God of Jacob,1710
who says, "I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up."18
