The seventy-fifth psalm is a song of thanksgiving and praise to God for His sovereign power and justice. This psalm begins with a declaration of praise to God, who is acknowledged as the one who judges and sets things right.

The psalmist then recounts a recent experience of God’s judgment, in which the wicked were brought down and the righteous were exalted. The psalmist emphasizes that it is God who holds the power to lift up and bring down, and he warns the arrogant not to boast in their own strength or accomplishments.

The psalm concludes with a declaration of trust in God’s ongoing sovereignty and justice, and a call to all to give thanks and praise to God for His goodness and steadfast love.

Psalm 75 expresses a deep faith in God’s power and justice, and a recognition that all things ultimately depend on His Will and purpose.
