Salme 75

Guds retfærdige dom

1Til korlederen: En lovsang af Asaf.

Vi priser og takker dig, Gud,
    vi glæder os over din godhed.
Du er os altid nær,
    og vi oplever din underfulde hjælp.

Dommen kommer til den fastsatte tid,
    og det bliver en retfærdig dom.
Jorden skal ryste og menneskene skælve,
    men Gud står urokkeligt fast.

Jeg siger til de stolte: „Vær ikke hovmodige.”
    Jeg advarer de gudløse: „Vær ikke selvsikre.
Prøv ikke på at kæmpe mod himlens Gud,
    sæt jer endelig ikke op imod ham.
Dommen kommer hverken fra øst eller vest,
    eller fra ørkenen nede mod syd.
For det er Gud, der dømmer os alle:
    han ydmyger den ene og ophøjer den anden.
Herren holder et bæger i hånden,
    hans vrede bobler som en krydret vin.
Han udøser sin straf over alle de onde,
    de skal tømme bægeret til sidste dråbe.”

10 Men jeg vil altid juble og glædes,
    takke og lovprise Israels Gud,
11 for han vil bryde de gudløses magt,
    men de gudfrygtiges styrke skal vokse.

Psalm 75

God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

For the choir director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

1We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks,
For Your name is near;
Men declare Your wondrous works.
“When I select an appointed time,
It is I who judge with equity.
“The earth and all who dwell in it [b]melt;
It is I who have firmly set its pillars. [c]Selah.
“I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn;
Do not lift up your horn on high,
Do not speak with insolent [d]pride.’”

For not from the east, nor from the west,
Nor from the [e]desert comes exaltation;
But God is the Judge;
He puts down one and exalts another.
For a cup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams;
It is [f]well mixed, and He pours out of this;
Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs.

But as for me, I will declare it forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 And all the horns of the wicked [g]He will cut off,
But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
