PSALMS - Chapter 9

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