PSALMS · Chapter 9
9:1 I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth
all your marvellous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O you most High.
9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
9:4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sat in the throne judging right.
9:5 You have rebuked the heathen, you have destroyed the wicked, you have put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O you enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and you have destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he has prepared his throne for judgment.
9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
9:10 And they that know your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek you.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwells in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
9:12 When he makes inquisition for blood, he remembers them: he forgets not the cry of the humble.
9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, you that lift me up from the gates of death:
9:14 That I may show forth all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in your salvation.
9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executes: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
9:18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in your sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
