1 Of Aʹsaph. A song.
We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks to you; Your name is near, And people declare your wondrous works.
2 You say: “When I set a time, I judge with fairness.
3 When the earth and all its inhabitants were dissolved, It was I who kept its pillars firm.”
4 I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,” And to the wicked, “Do not exalt your strength.
5 Do not exalt your strength up high Or speak with arrogance.
6 For exaltation does not come From the east or the west or the south.
7 For God is Judge. He puts one man down and exalts another.
8 For there is a cup in Jehovah’s hand; The wine is foaming and is fully mixed. He will surely pour it out, And all the wicked of the earth will drink it, down to the dregs.”
9 But as for me, I will proclaim it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 For he says: “I will cut off all the strength of the wicked, But the strength of the righteous will be exalted.”
