9:1 To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David. I
will praise [thee], O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show
forth all thy wonderful works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to
thy name, O thou most High.
9:3 When my enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish
at thy presence.
9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou sattest
on the throne judging right.
9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the
wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and
thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial hath perished with
9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath 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 thy name will put their trust in thee:
for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwelleth in Zion: declare
among the people his doings.
9:12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:
he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble [which I
suffer] from them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from
the gates of death:
9:14 That I may show forth all thy praise in the gates of the
daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy 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 executeth:
the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion.
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 thy sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: [that] the nations may know
themselves [to be but] men. Selah.
