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 pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked,
Lift not up the horn:
5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west,
nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up
8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, 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 drink them.
9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God
10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the
horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
