New International Reader's Version

Psalm 75

Psalm 75

For the director of music. A psalm of Asaph. A song to the tune of “Do Not Destroy.”

God, we praise you.
    We praise you because you are near to us.
    People talk about the wonderful things you have done.

You say, “I choose the appointed time to judge people.
    And I judge them fairly.
When the earth and all its people tremble,
    I keep everything from falling to pieces.
To the proud I say, ‘Don’t brag anymore.’
    To sinners I say, ‘Don’t show off your power.
Don’t show it off against me.
    Don’t talk back to me.’ ”

No one from east or west or north or south
    can judge themselves.
God is the one who judges.
    He says to one person, “You are guilty.”
    To another he says, “You are not guilty.”
In the hand of the Lord is a cup.
    It is full of wine mixed with spices.
    It is the wine of his anger.
He pours it out. All the evil people on earth
    drink it down to the very last drop.

I will speak about this forever.
    I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 God says, “I will destroy the power of all sinful people.
    But I will make godly people more powerful.”

Amplified Bible

Psalm 75

God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1We give thanks and praise to You, O God, we give thanks,
For Your [wonderful works declare that Your] [a]name is near;
People declare Your wonders.

“When I select an appointed time,
I will judge with equity,” [says the Lord].

“The earth and all the inhabitants of it melt [in tumultuous times].
It is I who will steady its pillars. Selah.

“I said to the arrogant, ‘Do not boast;’
And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn [of self-glorification].

‘Do not lift up your [defiant and aggressive] horn on high,
Do not speak with a stiff neck.’”


For not from the east, nor from the west,
Nor from the desert comes exaltation.

But God is the Judge;
He puts down one and lifts up another.

For a cup [of His wrath] is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams;
It is well mixed and fully spiced, and He pours out from it;
And all the wicked of the earth must drain it and drink down to its dregs.


But as for me, I will declare it and rejoice forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 
All the horns of the wicked He will cut off,
But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
