75

For the choir director: A psalm of Asaph. A song to be sung to the tune “Do Not Destroy!”

1We thank you, O God!

We give thanks because you are near.

People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds.

2God says, “At the time I have planned,

I will bring justice against the wicked.

3When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil,

I am the one who keeps its foundations firm.

Interlude

4“I warned the proud, ‘Stop your boasting!’

I told the wicked, ‘Don’t raise your fists!

5Don’t raise your fists in defiance at the heavens

or speak with such arrogance.’”

6For no one on earth—from east or west,

or even from the wilderness—

should raise a defiant fist.*75:6 Hebrew should lift. 

7It is God alone who judges;

he decides who will rise and who will fall.

8For the Lord holds a cup in his hand

that is full of foaming wine mixed with spices.

He pours out the wine in judgment,

and all the wicked must drink it,

draining it to the dregs.

9But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done;

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10For God says, “I will break the strength of the wicked,

but I will increase the power of the godly.”
