Psalm 9
Coverdale Bible of 1535 Par ▾ 

I Will Give Thanks to the LORD

1I wil geue thakes vnto the (o LORDE) with my whole herte, I wil speake of all thy maruelous workes.

2I wil be glad & reioyse in the, yee my songes wil I make of thy name, o thou most hyest.

3Because thou hast dryue myne enemies abacke, they were discofited, & perished at thy presence.

4For thou hast manteyned my right and my cause: thou syttest in the Trone that art the true iudge.

5Thou rebukest the Heithen, and destroyest the vngodly, thou puttest out their name for euer and euer.

6The enemies swerdes are come to an ende, thou hast ouerthrowen their cities, their memoriall is perished with the.

7But ye LORDE endureth for euer, he hath prepared his seate vnto iudgmet.

8He gouerneth ye worlde with rightuousnes & ministreth true iudgmet vnto the people.

9The LORDE is a defence for the poore, a defence in the tyme of trouble.

10Therfore they yt knowe thy name, put their trust in ye: for thou (LORDE) neuer faylest the, that seke the.

11O prayse the LORDE, which dwelleth in Sion shewe ye people of his doinges.

12And why? he maketh inquysicion for their bloude, and remembreth them: he forgetteth not the complaynte of the poore.

13Haue mercy vpo me (o LORDE) considre the trouble that I am in amoge myne enemies, thou that liftest me vp from ye gates of death.

14That I maye shewe all thy prayses within the portes off the doughter Sion, and reioyse in thy sauynge health.

15As for the Heithen, the are suncke downe in the pytte that they made: in the same nette, which they spred out priuely, is their owne fote take.

16Thus ye LORDE is knowne to execute true iudgment, whe the vngodly is trapped in the workes of his owne handes.

17Sela. The wicked must be turned vnto hell, and all the Heithen yt forget God.

18But the poore shal not allwaye be out of remembraunce, the paciet abydinge of soch as be in trouble shall not perish for euer.

19Vp LORDE, let not man haue the vpper hade, let the Heithe be codemned before the.

20O LORDE, set a scolemaster ouer the, that the Heithe maye knowe them selues to be but me. Sela.
