<Unto the end, for the hidden things of the Son. A psalm for David.> (9-2) I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will relate all thy wonders.
(9-3) I will be glad, and rejoice in thee: I will sing to thy name, O thou most high.
(9-4) When my enemy shall be turned back: they shall be weakened, and perish before thy face.
(9-5) For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice.
(9-6) Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished; thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
(9-7) The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: and their cities thou hast destroyed. Their memory hath perished with a noise:
(9-8) But the Lord remaineth for ever. He hath prepared his throne in judgment:
(9-9) And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice.
(9-10) And the Lord is become a refuge for the poor: a helper in due time in tribulation.
(9-11) And let them trust in thee who know thy name: for thou hast not forsaken them that seek thee, O Lord.
(9-12) Sing ye to the Lord, who dwelleth in Sion: declare his ways among the Gentiles:
(9-13) For requiring their blood, he hath remembered them: he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor.
(9-14) Have mercy on me, O Lord: see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies.
(9-15) Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.
(9-16) I will rejoice in thy salvation: the Gentiles have stuck fast in the destruction which they prepared. Their foot hath been taken in the very snare which they hid.
(9-17) The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands.
(9-18) The wicked shall be turned into hell, all the nations that forget God.
(9-19) For the poor man shall not be forgotten to the end: the patience of the poor shall not perish for ever.
(9-20) Arise, O Lord, let not man be strengthened: let the Gentiles be judged in thy sight.
(9-21) Appoint, O Lord, a lawgiver over them: that the Gentiles may know themselves to be but men.
