Psalm 75

Thanksgiving for God’s Righteous Judgment

To the Chief Musician. Set to a“Do 1Not Destroy.” a Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1 We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!

For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near.

2 “When I choose the 2proper time,

I will judge uprightly.

3 The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved;

I set up its pillars firmly.


4 “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’

And to the wicked, b‘Do not 3lift up the horn.

5 Do not lift up your horn on high;

Do not speak with 4a stiff neck.’ ”

6 For exaltation comes neither from the east

Nor from the west nor from the south.

7 But cGod is the Judge:

dHe puts down one,

And exalts another.

8 For ein the hand of the Lord there is a cup,

And the wine is red;

It is fully mixed, and He pours it out;

Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth

Drain and drink down.

9 But I will declare forever,

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10 “All fthe 5horns of the wicked I will also cut off,

But gthe horns of the righteous shall be hexalted.”


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
