To the Chief Musician. Destroy not. A Psalm of Asaph. A song
1 We will celebrate thee, O God! we will celebrate thee; And near is thy name: they will declare thy wonders.
2 When I shall have taken the congregation, I in uprightness will judge.
3 Dissolved is the earth, and all the inhabitants thereof: will establish the pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said to the fools, |Act not foolishly;| And to the ungodly, |Raise not up the horn.|
5 Raise not up on high your horn; And speak not with a stiff neck.
6 For neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the wilderness are exaltations.
7 For God is judge: tie bringeth low, and he setteth up.
8 For a cup is in the hand of Jehovah, and the wine is turbid; It is full of mixture, and he shall pour forth of it. Surely the dregs thereof they shall wring out;. And drink of it shall all the wicked of the earth.
9 But as for me I will publish for ever, I will sing psalms to the God of Jacob.
10 And all the horns of the ungodly I will break; But exalted shall be the horns of the righteous.
