Tehilim Chapter 9

tehilim 9


1. To the chief Musician, on the death of Labben, A Psalm of David.
2. I will praise you O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all your marvelous works.
3. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O you most High.
4. When my enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
5. For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sat in the throne judging right.
6. You have rebuked the nations, you have destroyed the wicked, you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
7. The enemies have come to an end, in perpetual ruins; for you have destroyed the cities; their memorial is perished.
8. But the Lord shall endure for ever; he has prepared his throne for judgment.
9. And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
10. The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
11. And those who know your name will put their trust in you; for you, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
12. Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion; declare his acts among the people.
13. For he avenges blood, he remembers it; he does not forgets the cry of the humble.
14. Be gracious to me, O Lord; consider my trouble which I suffer from those who hate me, you who lift me up from the gates of death;
15. That I may tell all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion; I will rejoice in your salvation.
16. The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made; their own foot is trapped in the net which they hid.
17. The Lord is known by the judgment which he executes; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
18. The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol, and all the nations that forget God.
19. For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
20. Arise, O Lord; do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in your sight.
21. Put them in fear, O Lord; that the nations may know themselves to be only men. Selah.
