Psalms Chapter 9 (Index)

001  To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David. I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvellous works.

002  I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

003  When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.

004  For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.

005  Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

006  O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.

007  But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

008  And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

009  The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

010  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

011  Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

012  When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

013  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:

014  That I may show forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

015  The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

016  The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

017  The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

018  For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

019  Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

020  Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
