Psalm 9 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 {To the chief Musician. Upon Muthlabben. a A Psalm of David.} I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High. 3 When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence: 4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously. 5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; b thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. 6 O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. -- Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished. c 7 But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment. 8 And it is he that will judge the world d with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity. 9 And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge e in times of distress. 10 And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings. 12 For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he f remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten. 13 Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting g me up from the gates of death: 14 That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation. 15 The nations are sunk down in the pit [that] they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken. 16 Jehovah is known [by] the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. h Selah. 17 The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God. 18 For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek i shall not perish for ever. 19 Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight. 20 Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. j Selah.
