1 We give you thanks, O God, we give you thanks, ♦︎
for your name is near, as your wonderful deeds declare.
2 I will seize the appointed time; ♦︎
I, the Lord, will judge with equity.
3 Though the earth reels and all that dwell in her, ♦︎
it is I that hold her pillars steady.
4 To the boasters I say, Boast no longer, ♦︎
and to the wicked, Do not lift up your 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 wilderness comes exaltation.
7 But God alone is judge; ♦︎
he puts down one and raises up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, ♦︎
well mixed and full of foaming wine.
9 He pours it out for all the wicked of the earth; ♦︎
they shall drink it, and drain the dregs.
10 But I will rejoice for ever ♦︎
and make music to the God of Jacob.
11 All the horns of the wicked will I break, ♦︎
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
