The righteous praise and thank the God of Jacob—They will be exalted—God is the judge, and the wicked will be condemned.
To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.
1 Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the apillars of it. Selah.
4 I said unto the afools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a astiff neck.
6 For apromotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the ajudge: he putteth bdown one, and setteth up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a acup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and bdrink them.
9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the ahorns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
