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. 2: I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. 3: When my enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. 4: For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou sattest on 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 hath 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, who 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] from them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: 14: That I may show 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 always 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.
