Psalm 9
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [SET] ON “DEATH OF THE SON.” A PSALM OF DAVID. I confess, O YHWH, with all my heart, "" I recount all Your wonders,

2I rejoice and exult in You, "" I praise Your Name, O Most High.

3In my enemies turning backward, "" They stumble and perish from Your face.

4For You have done my judgment and my right. You have sat on a throne, "" Judging [with] righteousness.

5You have rebuked nations, "" You have destroyed the wicked, "" You have blotted out their name for all time and forever.

6The enemy—[your] destructions have been completed forever, "" As for cities you have plucked up, "" Their memorial has perished with them.

7And YHWH abides for all time, "" He is preparing His throne for judgment.

8And He judges the world in righteousness, "" He judges the peoples in uprightness.

9And YHWH is a tower for the bruised, "" A tower for times of adversity.

10They trust in You who know Your Name, "" For You have not forsaken those seeking You, O YHWH.

11Sing praise to YHWH, inhabiting Zion, "" Declare His acts among the peoples,

12For He who is seeking for blood "" Has remembered them, "" He has not forgotten the cry of the afflicted.

13Favor me, O YHWH, "" See my affliction by those hating me, "" You who lift me up from the gates of death,

14So that I recount all Your praise, "" In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I rejoice on Your salvation.

15Nations have sunk in a pit they made, "" Their foot has been captured in a net that they hid.

16YHWH has been known, "" He has done judgment; By a work of his hands "" The wicked has been snared. Meditation. Selah.

17The wicked turn back to Sheol, "" All nations forgetting God.

18For the needy is not forgotten forever, "" [Nor] the hope of the humble lost for all time.

19Rise, O YHWH, do not let man be strong, "" Let nations be judged before Your face.

20Appoint them to fear, O YHWH, "" Let nations know they [are] men! Selah.
