Psalms 9

JPS_ASV_Byz(i) 1 (9:1) For the Leader; upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David. (9:2) I will give thanks unto the LORD with my whole heart; I will tell of all Thy marvellous works. 2 (9:3) I will be glad and exult in Thee; I will sing praise to Thy name, O Most High: 3 (9:4) When mine enemies are turned back, they stumble and perish at Thy presence; 4 (9:5) For Thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou sattest upon the throne as the righteous Judge. 5 (9:6) Thou hast rebuked the nations, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6 (9:7) O thou enemy, the waste places are come to an end for ever; and the cities which thou didst uproot, their very memorial is perished. 7 (9:8) But the LORD is enthroned for ever; He hath established His throne for judgment. 8 (9:9) And He will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples with equity. 9 (9:10) The LORD also will be a high tower for the oppressed, a high tower in times of trouble; 10 (9:11) And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee. 11 (9:12) Sing praises to the LORD, who dwelleth in Zion; declare among the peoples His doings. 12 (9:13) For He that avengeth blood hath remembered them; He hath not forgotten the cry of the humble. 13 (9:14) Be gracious unto me, O LORD, behold mine affliction at the hands of them that hate me; Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death; 14 (9:15) That I may tell of all Thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion, that I may rejoice in Thy salvation. 15 (9:16) The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. 16 (9:17) The LORD hath made Himself known, He hath executed judgment, the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah 17 (9:18) The wicked shall return to the nether-world, even all the nations that forget God. 18 (9:19) For the needy shall not alway be forgotten, nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever. 19 (9:20) Arise, O LORD, let not man prevail; let the nations be judged in Thy sight. 20 (9:21) Set terror over them, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. Selah
