Psalms 9

David praiseth God for executing of judgment.

Psalms 9:1 {For the Chief Musician; set to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.} I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvellous works. Psalms 9:2 I will be glad and exult in thee; I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High. Psalms 9:3 When mine enemies turn back, They stumble and perish at thy presence. Psalms 9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously. Psalms 9:5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever. Psalms 9:6 The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever; And the cities which thou hast overthrown, The very remembrance of them is perished. Psalms 9:7 But Jehovah sitteth [as king] for ever: He hath prepared his throne for judgment; Psalms 9:8 And he will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness. Psalms 9:9 Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed, A high tower in times of trouble; Psalms 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

He inciteth others to praise him.

Psalms 9:11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion: Declare among the people his doings. Psalms 9:12 For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them; He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.

He prayeth that he may have cause to praise him.

Psalms 9:13 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah; Behold my affliction [which I suffer] of them that hate me, Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death; Psalms 9:14 That I may show forth all thy praise. In the gates of the daughter of Zion I will rejoice in thy salvation. Psalms 9:15 The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made: In the net which they hid is their own foot taken. Psalms 9:16 Jehovah hath made himself known, he hath executed judgment: The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned back unto Sheol, Even all the nations that forget God. Psalms 9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten, Nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever. Psalms 9:19 Arise, O Jehovah; let not man prevail: Let the nations be judged in thy sight. Psalms 9:20 Put them in fear, O Jehovah: Let the nations know themselves to be but men. Selah.
