Psalm 75 Feb. 12 For the Chief Musician. To the tune of Do Not Destroy. A Psalm by Asaph. A song.  1We give thanks to You, God. We give thanks, for Your Name is near. Men tell about Your wondrous works.  2When I choose the appointed time, I will judge blamelessly. 3The earth and all its inhabitants quake. I firmly uphold its pillars. Selah. 4I said to the arrogant, Don’t boast!; I said to the wicked, Don’t lift up the horn. 5Don’t lift up your horn on high, don’t speak with a stiff neck. 6For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor yet from the south, comes exaltation. 7But God is the judge. He puts down one, and lifts up another. 8For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup, full of foaming wine mixed with spices. He pours it out; indeed the wicked of the earth drink and drink it to its very dregs.  9But I will declare this forever: I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10I will cut off all the horns of the wicked, but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.    


75:7 God is the judge. He puts down one, and lifts up another- We shouldn’t think that God isn’t watching this world, and will only open the books and consider everything when Christ returns. The judgment is ongoing, right now we are standing before Him and He is judging; the future judgment day will be the revelation of the judgments He has already reached as He watched our faith and behaviour in this life.
75:8 A cup- See on 60:3.
