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.”

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。
