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.”

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.
