Psalm 75 Bible in Basic English

God Abases the Wicked and Exalts the Righteous

75 1  To you, O God, we give praise, to you we give praise: and those who give honour to your name make clear your works of power. 2  When the right time has come, I will be the judge in righteousness. 3  When the earth and all its people become feeble, I am the support of its pillars. (Selah.) 4  I say to the men of pride, Let your pride be gone: and to the sinners, Let not your horn be lifted up. 5  Let not your horn be lifted up: let no more words of pride come from your outstretched necks.

6  For honour does not come from the east, or from the west, or uplifting from the south; 7  But God is the judge, putting down one, and lifting up another. 8  For in the hand of the Lord is a cup, and the wine is red; it is well mixed, overflowing from his hand: he will make all the sinners of the earth take of it, even to the last drop. 9  But I will ever be full of joy, making songs of praise to the God of Jacob. 10  By him will all the horns of the sinners be cut off; but the horns of the upright will be lifted up.
