Psalm 75

2 We thank you, God, we give thanks; we call upon your name, declare your wonderful deeds. You said:

3″I will choose the time; I will judge fairly.

4The earth and all its inhabitants will quake, but I have firmly set its pillars.” Selah

5 So I say to the boastful: “Do not boast!” to the wicked: “Do not raise your horns!

6 Do not raise your horns against heaven! Do not speak arrogantly against the Rock!”

7 For judgment comes not from east or from west, not from the desert or from the mountains,

8 But from God who decides, who brings some low and raises others high.

9  Yes, a cup is in the LORD’S hand, foaming wine, fully spiced. When God pours it out, they will drain it even to the dregs; all the wicked of the earth must drink.

10 But I will rejoice forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,

11 Who has said: “I will break off all the horns of the wicked, but the horns of the just shall be lifted up.” (NAB)

We pray Lord that we might contemplate our death.

We pray that we might be prepared to hear your judgment.

We pray that we might live a good and holy life, and die a holy death. Amen
