We praise you, oh God. “Yes, at the time appointed by me, I will judge according to my laws.” I have placed the pillars of the earth on firm ground. To the proud, I say “don't boast,” and to the wicked: “don't lift up the horn to boast about your power, for neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the wilderness comes exaltation.” God is the judge. He puts one down, and lifts up another. Yes, in the hand of the Lord there is a cup full of foaming wine. All of the wicked of the earth drink it to its very dregs. But I will rejoice forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
