“Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.”
Psalms 75:5-7, KJV
do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck.’” For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up, but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.
Psalm 75:5-7, ESV
Do not lift up your horn against heaven or speak arrogantly.’ ” Exaltation does not come from the east, the west, or the desert, or God is the judge: He brings down one and exalts another.
Psalm 75:5-7, HCSB
Don’t raise your fists in defiance at the heavens or speak with such arrogance.’ ”
For no one on earth—from east or west, or even from the wilderness—should raise a defiant fist. It is God alone who judges; he decides who will rise and who will fall.
Psalm 75:5-7, NLT
