76.12
PSALMS

Remember Thy reproach all the day at the hand of the base man.
23Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries,
The tumult of those that rise up against Thee which ascendeth continually.


75 For the Leader; Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.


2We give thanks unto Thee, O God,
We give thanks, and Thy name is near;
Men tell of Thy wondrous works.
 
3'When I take the appointed time,
I Myself will judge with equity.
4When the earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved,
I Myself establish the pillars of it.' Selah
 
5I say unto the arrogant 'Deal not arrogantly';
And to the wicked 'Lift not up the horn.'
6Lift not up your horn on high;
Speak not insolence with a haughty neck.
7For neither from the east, nor from the west,
Nor yet from the wilderness, cometh lifting up.
8For God is judge;
He putteth down one, and lifteth up another.
9For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, with foaming wine, full of mixture,
And He poureth out of the same;
Surely the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall drain them, and drink them.
 
10But as for me, I will declare for ever,
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
11All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off;
But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.


76 For the Leader; with string-music. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.


2In Judah is God known;
His name is great in Israel.
3In Salem also is set His tabernacle,
And His dwelling-place in Zion.
4There He broke the fiery shafts of the bow;
The shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah
 
5Glorious art Thou and excellent, coming down from the mountains of prey.
6The stout-hearted are bereft of sense, they sleep their sleep;
And none of the men of might have found their hands.
7At Thy rebuke, O God of Jacob,
They are cast into a dead sleep, the riders also and the horses.
 
8Thou, even Thou, art terrible;
And who may stand in Thy sight when once Thou art angry?
9Thou didst cause sentence to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared, and was still,
10When God arose to judgment,
To save all the humble of the earth. Selah
 
11Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee;
The residue of wrath shalt Thou gird upon Thee.
12Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God;
