1 We agive thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is bnear; Men declare cYour wondrous works. 2 "When I select an aappointed time, It is I who bjudge with equity. 3 "The aearth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its bpillars. Selah. 4 "I said to the boastful, 'Do not boast,' And to the wicked, 'aDo not lift up the horn; 5 Do not lift up your horn on high, aDo not speak with insolent pride.'" 6 For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the adesert comes exaltation; 7 But aGod is the Judge; He bputs down one and exalts another. 8 For a acup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams; It is bwell mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and cdrink down its dregs. 9 But as for me, I will adeclare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10 And all the ahorns of the wicked He will cut off, But bthe horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
