To the chief Musician. Upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.
1I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works. 2I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High. 3When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence: 4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously. 5Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. 6O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. --Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished. 7But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment. 8And it is he that will judge the world with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity. 9And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge in times of distress. 10And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings. 12For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten. 13Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting me up from the gates of death: 14That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation. 15The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken. 16Jehovah is known by the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. 17The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God#GodHebrew: Elohim 18For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever. 19Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight. 20Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
