|<< Psalm 9 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
I will praise Lord Jehovah from my whole heart and I shall tell all your wonders, oh, Most High!
2I shall rejoice and be glad in you, and I shall praise your Name, oh, Most High!
3When my enemies turn back their behind, they will stumble and be destroyed from before you.
4Because you have kept my reward and my judgment and you sat on the throne, Righteous Judge.
5You rebuked the nations and you destroyed the wicked and their names you have blotted out for an eternity of eternities.
6My enemies are finished by the sword; you have ripped out cities for eternity and you have destroyed their memorial.
7And Lord Jehovah endures to eternity and prepares his throne for judgment.
8For he shall judge the world in truth and the nations in integrity.
9Lord Jehovah shall be a place of refuge for the poor and their helper in times of suffering.
10And all who know your Name will hope in you, because you do not forsake those who seek you, Lord Jehovah.
11Sing to Lord Jehovah who dwells in Zion, and show his skills among the nations.
12Because he has remembered to require their blood and he does not forget the cry of the poor.
13Show mercy upon me, Lord Jehovah, and see my oppression by him who hates me, my Exalter from the gates of death.
14Because I shall tell all your wonders in the gates of the daughter of Zion, I shall exult in your salvation.
15The Gentiles have sunk into the ditch they have made, and their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16Lord Jehovah makes known the judgment that he does, and the wicked is caught by the work of his hands.
17The wicked shall turn back to Sheol, and all the peoples that forget God
18Because he never forgets the poor and you will never destroy the hope of the poor.
19Arise, Lord Jehovah, and let not a son of man be strengthened; the nations shall be judged before your face.
20Establish a lawgiver for them, who shall instruct the nations that they are children of men.
