|New International Version (© 2011)|
No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.
King James Bible
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
American Standard Version
For neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor yet from the south, cometh lifting up.
Young's Literal Translation
For not from the east, or from the west, Nor from the wilderness -- is elevation.
Psalm 75:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For promotion cometh neither from the east, etc. - As if the Lord had said, speaking to the Babylonians, None of all the surrounding powers shall be able to help you; none shall pluck you out of my hand. I am the Judge: I will pull you down, and set my afflicted people up, Psalm 75:7.
Calmet has observed that the Babylonians had Media, Armenia, and Mesopotamia on the East; and thence came Darius the Mede: that it had Arabia, Phoenicia, and Egypt on the West; thence came Cyrus, who overthrew the empire of the Chaldeans. And by the mountains of the desert, מדבר הרים midbar harim, which we translate South, Persia, may be meant; which government was established on the ruins of the Babylonish empire. No help came from any of those powers to the sinful Babylonians; they were obliged to drink the cup of the red wine of God's judgment, even to the very dregs. They were to receive no other punishment; this one was to annihilate them as a people for ever.
