Psalm 9

To the chief Musician upon Muth-labben, A Psalm of David.

1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee:
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.

ב Bet

3 When mine enemies are turned back,
They shall fall and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou satest in the throne judging right.

ג Gimel

5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked,
Thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end:
And thou hast destroyed cities; Their memorial is perished with them.

ה He

7 But the LORD shall endure for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment.
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness,
He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

ו Waw

9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
For thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

ז Zain

11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion:
Declare among the people his doings.
12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:
He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

ח Het

13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; Consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me,
Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion:
I will rejoice in thy salvation.

ט Tet

15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made:
In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth:
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

Higgaion. Selah.

י Yod

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

כ Kaph

18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten:
The expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail:
Let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O LORD:
That the nations may know themselves to be but men.

Selah.
