Psalm 75. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Unto Thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto Thee do we give thanks. For that Thy name is near, Thy wondrous works declare.
2 When I shall receive the congregation, I will judge uprightly.
3 When the earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved, I bear up the pillars of it. Selah
4 I said unto the fools, “Deal not foolishly,” and to the wicked, “Lift not up the horn.
5 Lift not up your horn on high; speak not with a stiff neck.”
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south,
7 but God is the Judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red and fully mixed; and He poureth out the same. But as for the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out and drink them.
9 But I will declare it for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked will I also cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
The Late Prayer.
Lord our God, we thank you for sending into our lives so much that turns our thoughts to things above and enables us always to look to you. Through Jesus Christ send us what is of heaven. Send what is of heaven into every single life and into the lives of the nations, so that something good may arise and the glory does not go to the Devil but to your Spirit, your heavenly Spirit alone. In their stubbornness people intend to do evil, but you can turn it all to the good. You can change everything. This is our faith. We hope in you, and we want to put our lives in your hands. Bless us with heavenly riches and power. In Jesus we pray. Amen.
