Psalms 9 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

For the Chief Musician; set to Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.

9:1I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart;

I will show forth all thy marvellous works.

9:2I will be glad and exult in thee;

I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.

9:3When mine enemies turn back,

They stumble and perish at thy presence.

9:4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;

Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.

9:5Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked;

Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.

9:6The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever;

And the cities which thou hast overthrown,

The very remembrance of them is perished.

9:7But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever:

He hath prepared his throne for judgment;

9:8And he will judge the world in righteousness,

He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.

9:9Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed,

A high tower in times of trouble;

9:10And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee;

For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

9:11Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion:

Declare among the people his doings.

9:12For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them;

He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.

9:13Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah;

Behold my affliction which I suffer of them that hate me,

Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;

9:14That I may show forth all thy praise.

In the gates of the daughter of Zion

I will rejoice in thy salvation.

9:15The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made:

In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

9:16Jehovah hath made himself known, he hath executed judgment:

The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

Higgaion. Selah

9:17The wicked shall be turned back unto Sheol,

Even all the nations that forget God.

9:18For the needy shall not alway be forgotten,

Nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever.

9:19Arise, O Jehovah; let not man prevail:

Let the nations be judged in thy sight.

9:20Put them in fear, O Jehovah:

Let the nations know themselves to be but men.
