Psalm 9


1 I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 2I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

3 My enemies turn back;    they stumble and perish before you. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause,    sitting enthroned as the righteous judge. 5 You have rebuked the (wicked) and destroyed the wicked;    you have blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies…

7 The LORD reigns forever;    he has established his throne for judgment. 8 He rules the world in righteousness    and judges the peoples with equity. 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,    a stronghold in times of trouble. 10Those who know your name trust in you,    for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

11 Sing the praises of the LORD, enthroned in (Heaven);    proclaim among the nations what he has done. 12For he who avenges blood remembers;    he does not ignore the cries of the (people).


…15 The (wicked) have fallen into the pit they have dug;    their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. 16 The LORD is known by his acts of justice;    the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[c] 17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,    all the (people) that forget God. 18But God will never forget the needy;    the hope of (people) will never perish.

19 Arise, LORD, do not let mortals triumph;    let the (wicked) be judged in your presence. 20 Strike them with terror, LORD;    let the (wicked) know they are only mortal.
