Your Name is Near

We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for Your Name is Near; men tell of Your Wonderful Deeds. You say, “ I choose the appointed time; It is I who judge uprightly. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant, I say, “Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.’”

No one from east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. But God who judges; He brings one down, he exalts another. In the hand of the of the Lord is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down its very dregs.

As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob. I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.

Psalm 75
