Psalms 75:1-2

Context
Psalm 75 1 

For the music director; according to the al-tashcheth style; 2  a psalm of Asaph; a song.

75:1 We give thanks to you, O God! We give thanks!

You reveal your presence; 3 

people tell about your amazing deeds.

75:2 God says, 4 

“At the appointed times, 5 

I judge 6  fairly.

1 sn Psalm 75. The psalmist celebrates God’s just rule, which guarantees that the godly will be vindicated and the wicked destroyed.

2 tn Heb “do not destroy.” Perhaps this refers to a particular style of music, a tune title, or a musical instrument. These words also appear in the superscription to Pss 57-59.

3 tn Heb “and near [is] your name.”

4 tn The words “God says” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation to clarify that God speaks in vv. 2-3.

5 tn Heb “when I take an appointed time.”

6 tn Heb “I, [in] fairness, I judge.” The statement is understood in a generalizing sense; God typically executes fair judgment as he governs the world. One could take this as referring to an anticipated (future) judgment, “I will judge.”
