To the leader: Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. 1
We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks; your name is near. People tell of your wondrous deeds.2
At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. 3 When the earth totters, with all its inhabitants, it is I who keep its pillars steady. Selah 4 I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,” and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horn; 5 do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with insolent neck.”6
For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up; 7 but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another. 8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed; he will pour a draught from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs. 9 But I will rejoice b Or moon; Heb light forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.10
All the horns of the wicked I will cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
