9:1 For the Leader; upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.

9:2 I will give thanks unto the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all Thy marvellous works.

9:3 I will be glad and exult in Thee; I will sing praise to Thy name, O Most High:

9:4 When mine enemies are turned back, they stumble and perish at Thy presence;

9:5 For Thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou sattest upon the throne as the righteous Judge.

9:6 Thou hast rebuked the nations, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.

9:7 O thou enemy, the waste places are come to an end for ever; and the cities which thou didst uproot, their very memorial is perished.

9:8 But the Lord is enthroned for ever; He hath established His throne for judgment.

9:9 And He will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples with equity.

9:10 the Lord also will be a high tower for the oppressed, a high tower in times of trouble;

9:11 And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; for thou, the Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.

9:12 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwelleth in Zion; declare among the peoples His doings.

9:13 For He that avengeth blood hath remembered them; He hath not forgotten the cry of the humble.

9:14 Be gracious unto me, O the Lord, behold mine affliction at the hands of them that hate me; Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;

9:15 That I may tell of all Thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion, that I may rejoice in Thy salvation.

9:16 The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

9:17 the Lord hath made Himself known, He hath executed judgment, the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah

9:18 The wicked shall return to the nether-world, even all the nations that forget God.

9:19 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten, nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever.

9:20 Arise, O the Lord, let not man prevail; let the nations be judged in Thy sight.

9:21 Set terror over them, O the Lord; let the nations know they are but men. Selah
