1 We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your name is near and men declare your wondrous works.
2 When I select an appointed time, it is I who judge in righteousness.
3 The earth and all who dwell in it dissolve meltbecome faint hearted. I have firmly set its pillars.
4 I said to the boastful: »Do not boast!« I said to the wicked: »Do not lift up the horn brag about your power!«
5 Do not lift up your horn on high. Do not speak with insolent pride.
6 There is no exaltation from the east, or from the west, or from the desert.
7 God is the Judge; He brings down one and exalts another.
8 Jehovah holds a cup in his hand. The wine foams and is well mixed. So he pours from it. Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs.
9 But as for me, I will declare forever and I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 He will remove the horn power of the wicked. The horn power of the righteous will be exalted.
