Psalm 9

To the chief Musician. Upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.

1 I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works.

2I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High.

3When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence:

4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously.

5Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

6O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. -- Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished.

7But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment.

8And it is he that will judge the world with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity.

9And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge in times of distress.

10And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

11Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings.

12For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten.

13Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting me up from the gates of death:

14That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation.

15The nations are sunk down in the pit [that] they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken.

16Jehovah is known [by] the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

17The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God.

18For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever.

19Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight.

20Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
