Psalm 75

1We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks; your name is near. People tell of your wondrous deeds.

2At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity.

3When the earth totters, with all its inhabitants, it is I who keep its pillars steady. Selah

4I say to the boastful, “Do not boast,” and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horn;

5do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with insolent neck.”

6For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up;

7but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.

8For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed; he will pour a draught from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs.

9But I will rejoice forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10All the horns of the wicked I will cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Psalm 76

1In Judah God is known, his name is great in Israel.

2His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.

3There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah

4Glorious are you, more majestic than the everlasting mountains.

5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; none of the troops was able to lift a hand.

6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.

7But you indeed are awesome! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?

8From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still

9when God rose up to establish judgment, to save all the oppressed of the earth. Selah

10Human wrath serves only to praise you, when you bind the last bit of your wrath around you.

11Make vows to the Lord your God, and perform them; let all who are around him bring gifts to the one who is awesome,

12who cuts off the spirit of princes, who inspires fear in the kings of the earth.

Psalm 77

1I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, that he may hear me.

2In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord; in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying; my soul refuses to be comforted.

3I think of God, and I moan; I meditate, and my spirit faints. Selah

4You keep my eyelids from closing; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

5I consider the days of old, and remember the years of long ago.

6I commune with my heart in the night; I meditate and search my spirit:

7“Will the Lord spurn forever, and never again be favorable?

8Has his steadfast love ceased forever? Are his promises at an end for all time?

9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah

10And I say, “It is my grief that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

11I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old.

12I will meditate on all your work, and muse on your mighty deeds.

13Your way, O God, is holy. What god is so great as our God?

14You are the God who works wonders; you have displayed your might among the peoples.

15With your strong arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

16When the waters saw you, O God, when the waters saw you, they were afraid; the very deep trembled.

17The clouds poured out water; the skies thundered; your arrows flashed on every side.

18The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook.

19Your way was through the sea, your path, through the mighty waters; yet your footprints were unseen.

20You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
