I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;1 I will tell of all your wonders.22
I will be glad and rejoice3 in you; I will sing praise4 to your name,5 O Most High.
My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
For you have upheld my right6 and my cause;7 you have sat on your throne,8 judging righteously.95
You have rebuked the nations10 and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name11 for ever and ever.
Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities;12 even the memory of them13 has perished.
The LORD reigns forever;14 he has established his throne15 for judgment.
He will judge the world in righteousness;16 he will govern the peoples with justice.179
The LORD is a refuge18 for the oppressed,19 a stronghold in times of trouble.2010
Those who know your name21 will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken22 those who seek you.2311
Sing praises24 to the LORD, enthroned in Zion;25 proclaim among the nations26 what he has done.2712
For he who avenges blood28 remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.2913
O LORD, see how my enemies30 persecute me! Have mercy31 and lift me up from the gates of death,3214
that I may declare your praises33 in the gates of the Daughter of Zion34 and there rejoice in your salvation.3515
The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;36 their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.3716
The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.38 "Higgaion."a "Selah"
The wicked return to the grave,b39 all the nations that forget God.4018
But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope41 of the afflicted42 ever perish.
Arise,43 O LORD, let not man triumph;44 let the nations be judged45 in your presence.
Strike them with terror,46 O LORD; let the nations know they are but men.47 "Selah"
