Unto you, O God, do we give thanks; *
indeed, unto you do we give thanks.
Those who call upon your Name *
declare your wondrous works.
“Surely at the time which I appoint, *
I, the Lord, will judge according to what is right.
The earth shakes with fear, and all that dwell therein; *
but I, even I, have made firm its pillars.
I say to the proud, ‘You should not boast!’ *
And to the ungodly, ‘Do not lift up your horn!
Do not lift up your horn on high, *
nor speak with a stiff neck.’”
For help comes neither from the east nor from the west, *
nor yet from the wilderness or the mountains.
For it is God who is the Judge; *
he puts down one and lifts up another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is foaming; *
it is fully mixed, and he pours it out.
As for the dregs of it, *
all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them and drain them out.
But I will magnify the God of Jacob *
and praise him for ever and ever.
All the horns of the ungodly will I break, *
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Notus in Judæa
In Judah God is known; *
his Name is great in Israel.
At Salem is his tabernacle, *
and his dwelling is in Zion.
There he broke the arrows of the bow, *
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of battle.
You are of more honor and might *
than the everlasting hills.
The strong of heart have been despoiled; they have slept their sleep; *
and all those whose hands were mighty have lost their strength.
At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, *
both the chariot and horse lie stunned upon the ground.
You, even you, are to be feared, *
and who may stand in your sight when you are angry?
You caused your judgment to be heard from heaven; *
the earth trembled and was silent,
When God arose to judgment *
and to help all the meek upon earth.
The wrath of man shall be turned to your praise, *
and the remnant of fierceness you shall restrain.
Make a vow unto the Lord your God and keep it, all you who are round about him; *
bring gifts unto him who is worthy to be feared.
He restrains the spirit of princes, *
and is feared among the kings of the earth.
