Tehillim (Psalms) 9
1Aleph I praise You, O יהוה, with all my heart; I declare all Your wonders.
2I rejoice and exult in You; I sing praise to Your Name, O Most High.
3Bĕt When my enemies turn back, They stumble and perish before You.
4For You executed my right and my cause, You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.
5Gimel You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wrong, You have wiped out their name forever and ever.
6 The enemy is no more – ruins everlasting! And You have uprooted the cities; Even their remembrance has perished.
7But יהוה abides forever, He is preparing His throne for judgment.
8And He judges the world in righteousness, He judges the peoples in straightness.
9Waw And יהוה is a refuge for the crushed one, A refuge in times of distress.
10And those who know Your Name trust in You, For You have not forsaken those who seek You, O יהוה.
11Zayin Sing praises to יהוה, who dwells in Tsiyon! Declare His deeds among the peoples.
12For He remembers the seekers of bloodshed, He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13Ḥet Show favour to me, O יהוה! See my affliction by those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death,
14So that I declare all Your praise In the gates of the daughter of Tsiyon. I rejoice in Your deliverance.
15Tet The nations have sunk down in the pit which they made; In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.
16יהוה has made Himself known, He has done right-ruling; The wrong is snared in the work of his own hands. Meditation. Selah.
17Yod The wrong return to She’ol, All the nations that forget Elohim.
18Kaph For the needy is not always forgotten; Neither the expectancy of the poor lost forever.
19Arise, O יהוה, Do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before Your face.
20Put them in fear, O יהוה, Let the nations know they are but men. Selah.
