Psalms 9

I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds

To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben.

A Psalm of David.

1 I will give thanks to the  Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your cwonderful deeds.
2I will be glad and dexult in you;
I will esing praise to your name fO Most High.
3 When my enemies turn back,
they stumble and perish before
Or because of
your presence.
4For you have hmaintained my just cause;
you have isat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
5 You have jrebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;
you have kblotted out their name forever and ever.
6The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;
their cities you rooted out;
the very memory of them has perished.
7 But the  Lord sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
8and he ljudges the world with righteousness;
he mjudges the peoples with uprightness.
9 The  Lord is na stronghold for othe oppressed,
a stronghold in ptimes of trouble.
10And those who qknow your name put their trust in you,
for you, O  Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing praises to the  Lord, who rsits enthroned in Zion!
Tell among the peoples his sdeeds!
12For he who tavenges blood is mindful of them;
he udoes not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13 vBe gracious to me, O  Lord!
See my affliction from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up from wthe gates of death,
14that I may recount all your praises,
that in the gates of xthe daughter of Zion
I may yrejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have sunk in zthe pit that they made;
in aathe net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16The  Lord has made himself abknown; he has executed judgment;
the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.  Higgaion.
