Psalm 9

9
To the chief Musician upon Muth-labben, A Psalm of David.
א Aleph
1I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
2I will be glad and rejoice in thee:
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.
ב Bet
3When mine enemies are turned back,
They shall fall and perish at thy presence.
4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou satest in the throne judging right.
ג Gimel
5Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked,
Thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end:
And thou hast destroyed cities; Their memorial is perished with them.
ה He
7But the LORD shall endure for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment.
8And he shall judge the world in righteousness,
He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
ו Waw
9The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble.
10And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
For thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
ז Zain
11Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion:
Declare among the people his doings.
12When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:
He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
ח Het
13Have 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:
14That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion:
I will rejoice in thy salvation.
ט Tet
15The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made:
In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth:
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
י Yod
17The wicked shall be turned into hell,
And all the nations that forget God.
כ Kaph
18For the needy shall not alway be forgotten:
The expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail:
Let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20Put them in fear, O LORD:
That the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
