Psalm 9

I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds

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 a rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, b O 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 1 nations,
You have destroyed the wicked;
You have c blotted out their name forever and ever.
6 O enemy, destructions are finished forever!
And you have destroyed cities;
Even their memory has d perished.

7 e But the LORD shall endure forever;
He has prepared His throne for judgment.
8 f He shall judge the world in righteousness,
And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.

9 The LORD also will be a g refuge 2 for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
10 And those who h know 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!
i Declare His deeds among the people.
12 j When He avenges blood, He remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the 3 humble.

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 4 the daughter of Zion.
I will k rejoice in Your salvation.

15 l The 5 nations have sunk down in the pit which they made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.
16 The LORD is m known by the judgment He executes;
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
n Meditation. 6 Selah

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell,
And all the 7 nations o that forget God.

18 p For the needy shall not always be forgotten;
q The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.

19 Arise, O LORD,
Do not let man prevail;
Let the 8 nations be judged in Your sight.
20 Put them in fear, O LORD,
That the 9 nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah
