Psalms, Chapter 9

   1: (To the chief Musician. Upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.) I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works.
   2: I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High.
   3: When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence:
   4: For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously.
   5: Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
   6: O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. -- Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished.
   7: But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment.
   8: And it is he that will judge the world with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity.
   9: And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge in times of distress.
   10: And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
   11: Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings.
   12: For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten.
   13: Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting me up from the gates of death:
   14: That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation.
   15: The nations are sunk down in the pit [that] they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken.
   16: Jehovah is known [by] the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
   17: The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God.
   18: For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever.
   19: Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight.
   20: Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
