Psalms 9

PSALM 9.

To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David.

I will praise thee, O  Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
maintained…: Heb. made my judgment
,
judging right: Heb. judging in righteousness
Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
O thou…: or, The destructions of the enemy are come to a perpetual end: and their cities hast thou destroyed, etc
But the  Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. The  Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
a refuge: Heb. an high place
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou,  Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing praises to the  Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. 12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
humble: or, afflicted
13 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: 14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation. 15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. 16 The  Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
Higgaion: that is, Meditation
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. 18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19 Arise, O  Lord; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 20 Put them in fear, O  Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
