Psalm 9

Psalm 9

Prayer and Thanksgiving for the Lord’s Righteous Judgments

To the Chief Musician. To The Tune of 1“Death of the Son.” A Psalm of David.

1 I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;

I will tell of all Your marvelous works.

2 I will be glad and arejoice in You;

I will sing praise to Your name, bO Most High.

3 When my enemies turn back,

They shall fall and perish at Your presence.

4 For You have maintained my right and my cause;

You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.

5 You have rebuked the 2nations,

You have destroyed the wicked;

You have cblotted out their name forever and ever.

6 O enemy, destructions are finished forever!

And you have destroyed cities;

Even their memory has dperished.

7 eBut the Lord shall endure forever;

He has prepared His throne for judgment.

8 fHe shall judge the world in righteousness,

And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.

9 The Lord also will be a grefuge 3for the oppressed,

A refuge in times of trouble.

10 And those who hknow Your name will put their trust in You;

For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion!

iDeclare His deeds among the people.

12 jWhen He avenges blood, He remembers them;

He does not forget the cry of the 4humble.

13 Have mercy on me, O Lord!

Consider my trouble from those who hate me,

You who lift me up from the gates of death,

14 That I may tell of all Your praise

In the gates of 5the daughter of Zion.

I will krejoice in Your salvation.

15 lThe 6nations have sunk down in the pit which they made;

In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.

16 The Lord is mknown by the judgment He executes;

The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

nMeditation. 7


17 The wicked shall be turned into hell,

And all the 8nations othat forget God.

18 pFor the needy shall not always be forgotten;

qThe expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.

19 Arise, O Lord,

Do not let man prevail;

Let the 9nations be judged in Your sight.

20 Put them in fear, O Lord,

That the 1nations may know themselves to be but men.
