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.”

诗篇 75

上帝是审判者

亚萨的诗,交给乐长,调用“休要毁坏”。

1上帝啊,
我们称谢你,我们称谢你,
因为你与我们同在。
人们都述说你奇妙的作为。
你说:“我已定好时间,
我必秉公审判。
大地震动,世人战抖的时候,
是我使地的根基稳固。(细拉)
我警告狂妄人不要再狂傲,
告诫恶人不要再张狂。
不要再狂妄自大,
不要说话傲气冲天。”
人的尊贵不是来自东方,
不是来自西方,
也不是来自旷野。
决定人尊贵的是上帝:
祂擢升这个,贬抑那个。
耶和华手中的杯里盛满泛着泡沫、精工调制的怒酒。
祂倒出怒酒,让世上的恶人喝得一滴不剩。
我要永远宣扬祂的作为,
我要颂赞雅各的上帝。
10 上帝必铲除恶人的势力,
使义人充满力量。
