Psalm 9
Berean Study Bible Par ▾ 

I Will Give Thanks to the LORD

For the choirmaster. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.” A Psalm of David.a

I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart;

I will recount all Your wonders.

2I will be glad and rejoice in You;

I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

3When my enemies retreat,

they stumble and perish before You.

4For You have upheld my just cause;

You sit on Your throne judging righteously.

5You have rebuked the nations;

You have destroyed the wicked;

You have erased their name forever and ever.

6The enemy has come to eternal ruin,

and You have uprooted their cities;

the very memory of them has vanished.

7But the LORD abides forever;

He has established His throne for judgment.

8He judges the world with justice;

He will govern the people with equity.

9The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,

a stronghold in times of trouble.

10Those who know Your name will trust in You,

for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

11Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion;

proclaim His deeds among the nations.

12For the Avenger of bloodshed remembers;

He does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.

13Be merciful to me, O LORD;

see how my enemies afflict me!

Snatch me from the gates of death,

14that I may declare all Your praises—

that within the gates of Daughter Zion

I may rejoice in Your salvation.

15The nations have fallen into a pit of their making;

their feet are snared in the net they have hidden.

16The LORD is known by the justice He brings;

the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.

Higgaion Selahb

17The wicked will return to Sheol—

all the nations who forget God.

18For the needy will not always be forgotten;

nor the hope of the oppressed forever dashed.

19Rise up, O LORD, let not man prevail;

let the nations be judged in Your presence.

20Lay terror upon them, O LORD;

let the nations know they are but men.

Selah
