1 For the Chief Musician. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A Psalm by Asaph. A song.We give thanks to you, God.We give thanks, for your Name is near.Men tell about your wondrous works.
2 When I choose the appointed time,I will judge blamelessly.
3 The earth and all its inhabitants quake.I firmly hold its pillars.Selah.
4 I said to the arrogant, "Do not boast!"I said to the wicked, "Do not lift up the horn.
5 Do not lift up your horn on high.Do not speak with a stiff neck."
6 For neither from the east, nor from the west,nor yet from the south, comes exaltation.
7 But God is the judge.He puts down one, and lifts up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup,full of foaming wine mixed with spices.He pours it out.Indeed the wicked of the earth drink and drink it to its very dregs.
9 But I will declare this forever:I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 I will cut off all the horns of the wicked,but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
