Praise for Yahweh’s Justice

1 abI will thank Yahweh with all my heart. I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing [the praise of] your name, O Most High. 3 When my enemies turn back, they will stumble and perish because of your presence. 4 For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat on [the] throne judging correctly. 5 You have rebuked [the] nations; you have destroyed [the] wicked. Their name you have blotted out forever and ever. 6 The enemies are destroyed [in] ruins forever, and you have uprooted [their] cities; their very memory has perished. 7 But Yahweh sits [enthroned] forever. He has established his throne for judgment. 8 And he will judge [the] world with righteousness. He will judge [the] peoples with equity. 9 And Yahweh will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of distress. 10 And those who know your name will trust in you, for you do not forsake those [who] seek you, O Yahweh. 11 Sing [praises] to Yahweh [who] sits [enthroned]c in Zion. Tell his deeds among the peoples, 12 for he [who] {avenges bloodshed}d remembers them. He does not forget the distressed cry of [the] afflicted. 13 Be gracious to me, O Yahweh. See my suffering from [those who] hate me, [you who] lift me up from the gates of death, 14 so that I may tell of all your praises. In the gates of the daughter of Zion let me rejoice in your salvation. 15 [The] nations have fallen in [the] pit [that] they made; their foot is caught in [the] net that they hid. 16 Yahweh has made himself known; he has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his hands. Higgaione Selah 17 [The] wicked shall turn back to Sheol, all [the] nations forgetting God, 18 for [the] needy shall not always be forgotten; the hope of the poor shall never perish. 19 Rise up, O Yahweh, let not humansf prevail; let [the] nations be judged before you. 20 O Yahweh, put them in fear. Let [the] nations know they [are merely] human. Selah
