Psalms 9


I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart

David praises God for executing judgment

1 [9:2] I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. 2 [9:3] I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. 3 [9:4] When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. 4 [9:5] For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right. 5 [9:6] Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. 6 [9:7] O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them. 7 [9:8] But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. 8 [9:9] And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. 9 [9:10] The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. 10 [9:11] And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

He incites others to praise him

11 [9:12] Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. 12 [9:13] When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

He prays that he may have cause to praise him

13 [9:14] 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 [9:15] That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation. 15 [9:16] The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. 16 [9:17] The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. 17 [9:18] The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. 18 [9:19] For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19 [9:20] Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 20 [9:21] Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
