Psalm 9
Bishops' Bible of 1568 Par ▾ 

I Will Give Thanks to the LORD

1To the chiefe musition at the death of Labben, a psalme of Dauid. I wyl prayse God with all myne heart: I wyl recite all thy marueylous workes.

2I wyll be glad & reioyce in thee: I wyll sing psalmes vnto thy name, O thou most hyest.

3For that myne enemies are returned backwarde: are fallen and perished at thy presence.

4For that thou hast geuen iudgement in my ryght and cause: thou that iudgest right, hast sit in the throne of iudgement.

5Thou hast rebuked the Heathen, and destroyed the vngodly: thou hast abolished their name for euer and euer.

6O thou enemie thou thoughtest to bryng vs to a perpetuall desolation: and to destroy our cities, so that there shoulde remayne no memory of them.

7But God wyll sit for euer: he hath prepared his throne for iudgement.

8For he wyll iudge the world in iustice: and minister iudgement vnto the people in righteousnesse.

9God also wyll be a refuge for the oppressed: euen a refuge in tyme of trouble.

10And they that knowe thy name wyll put their trust in thee: for thou O God hast neuer fayled them that seeke thee.

11Sing psalmes vnto God abiding at Sion: declare his notable actes among the people.

12For he maketh inquisition of blood: he remembreth it, and forgetteth not the complaynt of the poore.

13Haue mercy on me O God: consider the trouble whiche I suffer of them that hate me, lift me vp from the gates of death.

14That I may shewe all thy prayses within the gates of the daughter of Sion: and reioyce in thy saluation.

15The Heathen are sunke downe into the pit that they made: their owne foote is snared in the same net whiche they had layde priuily for other.

16God is knowen by the iudgement that he hath executed: the vngodly is trapped in ye worke of his owne handes, this ought to be considered alwayes. Selah.

17The wicked shalbe turned vnto hell: and all people that forget God.

18But the poore shall not alway be forgotten: neither shall the hope of the humble afflicted, perishe for euer.

19Aryse vp O God, let not man preuaile: let the Heathen in thy sight be iudged.

20Put them in feare O God: that the Heathen may knowe them selues to be but men. Selah.
