(Of the Director; “Do Not Spoil”; a psalm of Asaph’s, a song.)
75 We thank you, God, we thank you
and call on your name, tell the story of your wonders.
2 “When my day comes
I will judge evenhandedly.
3 Earth and all its inhabitants swing back and forth—
I make its pillars fast. (Selah)
4 I say to reckless men ‘Do not be so reckless,’
and to wrong-doers ‘Do not carry your horns so loftily.’”
5 Do not carry your horns so very loftily,
talking arrogance against the Rock;
6 For not from east nor from west
nor yet from wilderness comes uplifting,
7 But God gives judgment,
brings this one down and that one up.
8 For Jehovah has in his hand a cup
with foaming wine full of strong spice,
And he pours to this one and to that one;
they are to drain its very dregs,
all earth’s wrong-doers are to drink.
9 But I will exult forever,
will make music to the God of Jacob,
10 And chop off all the horns of wrong-doers;
right-doers’ horns shall be carried loftily.
