11 Sing praises to ADONAI, who lives in Tziyon; proclaim his deeds among the peoples. 11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 For the avenger of blood remembers them, he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted: 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
13 "Have mercy on me, ADONAI! See how I suffer from those who hate me; you raise me from the gates of death, 13 O LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 so that I can proclaim all your praises at the gates of the daughter of Tziyon and rejoice in this deliverance of yours." 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of the Daughter of Zion and there rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have drowned in the pit they dug, caught their own feet in the net they hid. 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 ADONAI made himself known and executed judgment; the wicked are ensnared in the work of their own hands. (Higgayon; Selah) 16 The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. "Higgaion." "Selah"
17 The wicked will return to Sh'ol, all the nations that forget God. 17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.
18 For the poor will not always be forgotten or the hope of the needy perish forever. 18 But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
19 Arise, ADONAI! Don't let mortals prevail! Let the nations be judged in your presence. 19 Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Strike them with terror, ADONAI! Let the nations know they are only human. (Selah) 20 Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. "Selah"
