To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, A Psalm [or] Song of Asaph. To thee, O God, do we give thanks, [to thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near, thy wondrous works declare.
When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
I said to the fools, Deal not foolishly; and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
Lift not up your horn on high: speak [not with] a stiff neck.
For promotion [cometh] neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
But God [is] the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
For in the hand of the LORD [there is] a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture, and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs of it all the wicked of the earth shall wring [them] out, [and] drink [them].
But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; [but] the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
