Psalms 75

(A psalm and a song by Asaph for the music leader. To the tune “Don't Destroy.”)

Praise God for All He Has Done

1Our God, we thank you

for being so near to us!

Everyone celebrates

your wonderful deeds.

2You have set a time

to judge with fairness.

3The earth trembles,

and its people shake;

you alone keep

its foundations firm.

4You tell every bragger,

“Stop bragging!”

And to the wicked you say,

“Don't boast of your power!

5Stop bragging! Quit telling me

how great you are.”

6Our Lord and our God,

victory doesn't come

from the east or the west

or from the desert.

7You are the one who judges.

You can take away power

and give it to others.

8You hold in your hand

a cup filled with wine,

strong and foaming.

You will pour out some

for every sinful person

on this earth,

and they will have to drink

until it is gone.

9But I will always tell about

you, the God of Jacob,

and I will sing your praise.

10Our Lord, you will destroy

the power of evil people,

but you will give strength

to those who are good.
