Psalm 9
New Heart English Bible
1[For the choir director; according to Muth-labben. A Psalm by David.] I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart. I will tell of all your marvelous works.

2I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

3When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish in your presence.

4For you have upheld my just cause. You sit on the throne judging righteously.

5You have rebuked the nations. You have destroyed the wicked. You have blotted out their name forever and ever.

6The enemy is overtaken by endless ruin; and the very memory of the cities which you have overthrown has perished.

7But the LORD reigns forever. He has prepared his throne for judgment.

8And he will judge the world in righteousness. He will judge the peoples with equity.

9The LORD will also be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

10And those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

11Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion, and declare among the people what he has done.

12For he who takes revenge against murderers remembers them. He doesn't forget the cry of the afflicted.

13Have mercy on me, LORD. See my affliction by those who hate me. You lift me up from the gates of death,

14so that I may tell all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in your salvation.

15The nations have fallen into the pit they had made. In the net which they hid, their feet are caught.

16The LORD has made himself known. He has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

17The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol, even all the nations that forget God.

18For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

19Arise, LORD. Do not let man prevail. Let the nations be judged in your presence.

20Terrify them, LORD. Let the nations know that they are only human. Selah.
