New International Version

Psalm 75

Psalm 75[a]

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

We praise you, God,
    we praise you, for your Name is near;
    people tell of your wonderful deeds.

You say, “I choose the appointed time;
    it is I who judge with equity.
When the earth and all its people quake,
    it is I who hold its pillars firm.[b]
To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
    and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.[c]
Do not lift your horns against heaven;
    do not speak so defiantly.’”

No one from the east or the west
    or from the desert can exalt themselves.
It is God who judges:
    He brings one down, he exalts another.
In the hand of the Lord is a cup
    full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
    drink it down to its very dregs.

As for me, I will declare this forever;
    I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,
10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
    but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”

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.
