Notes: It is dangerous to sing a psalm calling for God to judge the powerful or to pour a draught of bitter wine down the throats of the proud when the singers themselves may in fact be the powerful and the proud. Rather than representing the psalm as a call for judgment on others, this versification imagines that we may be the ones in danger of being judged as insolent. The psalm could first be read, after which the worship leader might ask, “Is it possible that some may be able to pray this psalm against us? Have we lifted ourselves up?” After a moment of silence for contemplation, the congregation can sing this song with humility and contrition.
