Psalm 75

For the music leader. Do not destroy. A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 We give thanks to you, God. Yes, we give thanks! Your name is near. Your marvelous deeds are declared.
2 God says,"When I decide the time is right, I will establish justice just so.
3 The earth and all its inhabitants will melt, but I will keep its pillars steady." Selah
4 I said to the arrogant, "Don't be arrogant!" To the wicked I said, "Don't exalt your strength!
5 Don't exalt your strength so highly. Don't speak so arrogantly against the rock."
6 Because what exalts someone doesn't come from the east or west; it's not from the south either.
7 Rather it is God who is the judge. He brings this person down, but that person he lifts up.
8 Indeed, there's a cup in the LORD's hand full of foaming wine, mixed with spice. He will pour it out, and all of the earth's wicked people must drink it; they must drink every last drop!
9 But I will rejoice always; I will sing praises to Jacob's God!
10 God says: "I will demolish every bit of the wicked's power, but the strength of the righteous will be lifted up."
