|God Abases the Proud, but Exalts the Righteous|
|For the Chief Musician; set to Al-Tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.|
| ||WE give thanks unto thee, O God;|
We give thanks, for 1 thy name is near:
Men tell of thy wondrous works.
| ||When I shall find 2 the set time,|
I will judge uprightly.
| ||The 3 earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved:|
I have set 4 up the pillars of it. [Selah
| ||I said unto the arrogant, 5 Deal not arrogantly;|
And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
| ||Lift not up your horn on high;|
Speak not with 6 a stiff neck.
| ||For neither from the east, nor from the west,|
Nor yet from 7 the south, 8 cometh lifting up.
| ||But God is the judge:|
He putteth down one, and lifteth up another.
| ||For in the hand of Jehovah there is a cup, and the wine foameth; 9|
It is full of mixture, and he poureth out of the same:
Surely the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall drain them, and drink them.
| ||But I will declare for ever,|
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
| ||All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off;|
But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
