1 We give thanks to you, God. We give thanks, for your Name is near. Men tell about your wondrous works.
2 When I choose the appointed time, I will judge blamelessly. 3 The earth and all its inhabitants quake. I firmly hold its pillars. Selah. 4 I said to the arrogant, "Do not boast." I said to the wicked, "Do not lift up the horn. 5 Do not lift up your horn on high. Do not speak with a stiff neck."
6 For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor yet from the south, comes exaltation. 7 But God is the judge. He puts down one, and lifts up another. 8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, full of foaming wine mixed with spices. He pours it out. Indeed the wicked of the earth drink and drink it to its very dregs.
