God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous
For the Chief Musician; set to Al-Tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.
[ 1] W E give thanks unto thee, O God; We give thanks, for 1 thy name is near: Men tell of thy wondrous works.
[ 2] When I shall find 2 the set time, I will judge uprightly.
[ 3] The 3 earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I have set 4 up the pillars of it. [Selah
[ 4] I said unto the arrogant, 5 Deal not arrogantly; And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
[ 5] Lift not up your horn on high; Speak not with 6 a stiff neck.
[ 6] For neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor yet from 7 the south, 8 cometh lifting up.
[ 7] But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and lifteth up another.
[ 8] For in the hand of Jehovah there is a cup, and the wine foameth; 9 It is full of mixture, and he poureth out of the same: Surely the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall drain them, and drink them.
[ 9] But I will declare for ever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
[ 10] All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
