To the director. “Do not bring to ruin.”* A melody. Of Aʹsaph.+ A song.
75 We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks to you,+
And your name is near.+
Men have to declare your wondrous works.+
2 “For I proceeded to take a set time;+
I myself began judging with uprightness.+
3 The earth and all its inhabitants being dissolved,+
It was I that adjusted its pillars.”+ Seʹlah.
4 I said to the foolish ones: “Do not be foolish,”+
And to the wicked ones: “Do not exalt the horn.+
5 Do not exalt YOUR horn on high.
Do not speak with an arrogant neck.+
6 For neither from the east* nor from the west,
Nor from the south* is there an exalting.
7 For God is the judge.+
This one he abases, and that one he exalts.+
8 For there is a cup in the hand of Jehovah,+
And the wine is foaming, it is full of mixture.
And he will surely pour out its dregs from it;
All the wicked ones of the earth will drain [them] out, drink [them].”+
9 But as for me, I shall tell [of it] to time indefinite;
I will make melody to the God of Jacob.+
10 And all the horns of the wicked ones I shall cut down.+
The horns of the righteous one will be exalted.+
