1 To the Chief Musician. Do not destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. To You, O God, we have given thanks, to You we have given thanks; for Your name is near, Your wonderful works declared.
2 When I take the appointed time, I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all its people are melting away; I hold up its pillars. Selah.
4 I said to the proud, Do not boast; and to the wicked, Do not lift up the horn;
5 do not lift up your horn on high; [nor] speak [with] a stiff neck.
6 For lifting up [comes] neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God [is] the judge; [He] puts down one and sets up another.
8 For in the hand of the LORD [there is] a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed; and He pours out from it; but the dregs of it, all the wicked of the earth shall drain its dregs [and] drink.
9 But I will declare forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 Also I will cut off all the horns of the wicked; [but] the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
