1We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!
Thanksgiving for God’s Righteous JudgmentTo the Chief Musician. Set to ⚓“Do Not Destroy.” A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near.
2“When I choose the proper time,
I will judge uprightly.
3The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved;
I set up its pillars firmly.
4“I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’
And to the wicked, ⚓‘Do not lift up the horn.
5Do not lift up your horn on high;
Do not speak with a stiff neck.’ ”
6For exaltation comes neither from the east
Nor from the west nor from the south.
7But ⚓God is the Judge:
⚓He puts down one,
And exalts another.
8For ⚓in the hand of the Lordthere is a cup,
And the wine is red;
It is fully mixed, and He pours it out;
Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth
Drain and drink down.
9But I will declare forever,
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10“All⚓ the horns of the wicked I will also cut off,
But⚓the horns of the righteous shall be ⚓exalted.”
