Psalm 75

(from Day 15 Morning Prayer)

Confitebimur tibi

  1. UNTO thee, O God, do we give thanks: yea, unto thee do we give thanks.
  2. Thy Name also is so nigh: and that do thy wondrous works declare.
  3. When I receive the congregation: I shall judge according unto right.
  4. The earth is weak, and all the inhabiters thereof: I bear up the pillars of it.
  5. I said unto the fools, Deal not so madly: and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn.
  6. Set not up your horn on high: and speak not with a stiff neck.
  7. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west: nor yet from the south.
  8. And why? God is the Judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
  9. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red: it is full mixed, and he poureth out of the same.
  10. As for the dregs thereof: all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them, and suck them out.
  11. But I will talk of the God of Jacob: and praise him for ever.
  12. All the horns of the ungodly also will I break: and the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
