Psalm 9
Douay-Rheims Bible

I Will Give Thanks to the Lord

1Unto the end, for the hidden things of the Son. A psalm for David. [2] I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will relate all thy wonders.

2{3}I will be glad, and rejoice in thee: I will sing to thy name, O thou most high.

3{4}When my enemy shall be turned back: they shall be weakened, and perish before thy face.

4{5}For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice.

5{6}Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished; thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.

6{7}The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: and their cities thou hast destroyed. Their memory hath perished with a noise:

7{8}But the Lord remaineth for ever. He hath prepared his throne in judgment:

8{9}And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice.

9{10}And the Lord is become a refuge for the poor: a helper in due time in tribulation.

10{11}And let them trust in thee who know thy name: for thou hast not forsaken them that seek thee, O Lord.

11{12}Sing ye to the Lord, who dwelleth in Sion: declare his ways among the Gentiles:

12{13}For requiring their blood, he hath remembered them: he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor.

13{14}Have mercy on me, O Lord: see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies.

14{15}Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.

15{16}I will rejoice in thy salvation: the Gentiles have stuck fast in the destruction which they prepared. Their foot hath been taken in the very snare which they hid.

16{17}The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands.

17{18}The wicked shall be turned into hell, all the nations that forget God.

18{19}For the poor man shall not be forgotten to the end: the patience of the poor shall not perish for ever.

19{20}Arise, O Lord, let not man be strengthened: let the Gentiles be judged in thy sight.

20{21}Appoint, O Lord, a lawgiver over them: that the Gentiles may know themselves to be but men.
