Psalm 9

I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds

To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.

1 I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your 1wonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and 2exult in you; I will 3sing praise to your name, 4O Most High.
3 When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish beforea your presence.
4 For you have 5maintained my just cause; you have 6sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
5 You have 7rebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish; you have 8blotted out their name forever and ever.
6 The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins; their cities you rooted out; the very memory of them has perished.
7 But the LORD sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for justice,
8 and he 9judges the world with righteousness; he 10judges the peoples with uprightness.
9 The LORD is 11a stronghold for 12the oppressed, a stronghold in 13times of trouble.
10 And those who 14know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, who 15sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples his 16deeds!
12 For he who 17avenges blood is mindful of them; he 18does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13 19Be gracious to me, O LORD! See my affliction from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from 20the gates of death,
14 that I may recount all your praises, that in the gates of 21the daughter of Zion I may 22rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have sunk in 23the pit that they made; in 24the net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The LORD has made himself 25known; he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion. Selah
17 The wicked shall 26return to Sheol, all the nations that 27forget God.
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and 28the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
19 29Arise, O LORD! Let not 30man prevail; let the nations be judged before you!
20 Put them in fear, O LORD! Let the nations know that they are but 31men! Selah
