International Standard Version
1We praise you, God! We praise you —your presence draws near— as we declare your wonderful deeds.
2"At the time that I choose I will judge the righteous.
3While the earth and all its inhabitants melt away, it is I who keep its pillars firm." Interlude
4I will say to the proud, "Don't brag," and to the wicked, "Don't vaunt your strength.
5Don't use your strength to fight heaven or speak from stubborn arrogance."
6For exaltation comes not from the east, the west, or the wilderness,
7since God is the judge. This one he will debase or that one he will exalt.
8For there is a cup in the hand of the LORD, foaming with well-mixed wine that he will pour out, leaving only the dregs, from which all the wicked of the earth will drink.
9But as for me, I will declare forever, singing praise to the God of Jacob.
10I will cut down the strength of the wicked, but the strength of the righteous will be lifted up.
