Wesley's Notes for Psalms 75:8


75:8 For - God is here compared to the master of a feast, who then used to distribute portions of meat and drink to the several guests. A cup - Of vengeance. Red - Such as the best wine of Judea was. Mixture - The wine is mingled not with water, but with strengthening and intoxicating ingredients. Dregs - The worst and most dreadful part of those tribulations. Shall wring - This dreadful draught was brought upon them by their own choice and wickedness.


Discussion for Psalms 75

  • Margaret Nkosi
    on Psalm 75 the psalmist exalts God. He is all knowing God. It is Gods principal that if God is exalted he draws men unto himself. We need to be humble and of a contrite spirit especially to the Lord. He gives grace to the humble. But God will judge the proud. The more we are closer to God the more we learn to be humble. Always repent and be humble before our God. He alone can promote or demote u.

    God weighs a man's heart and see his cause. He cannot be deceived. When in wickedness and hate is pursued it is he that will handle such a cause. It is his will to exalt the humble and destroy the prideful and arrogant man of mischief. And, he will whether it be in this life or the next, he will.
