Psalm 9
New King James VersionInternational Standard Version
1To the Chief Musician. To [i]the tune of[/i] “Death of the Son.” A Psalm of David. I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.1I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, I will declare all your wonderful deeds.
2I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.2I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praises to your name, Most High!
3When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence.3When my enemies turn back, they will stumble and perish before you.
4For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.4For you have brought about justice for me and my cause; you sit on the throne judging righteously.
5You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever.5You rebuked the nations, you destroyed the wicked, you wiped out their name forever and ever.
6O enemy, destructions are finished forever! And you have destroyed cities; Even their memory has perished.6The enemy has perished, reduced to ruins forever. You uprooted their cities, the very memory of them vanished.
7But the LORD shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment.7But the LORD sits on his throne forever; his throne is established for judgment.
8He shall judge the world in righteousness, And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.8He will judge the world righteously and make just decisions for the people.
9The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble.9The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of distress.
10And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.10Those who know your name will trust you, for you have not forsaken those who seek you, LORD.
11Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! Declare His deeds among the people.11Sing praises to the LORD who dwells in Zion; declare his mighty deeds among the peoples.
12When He avenges blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble.12As an avenger of blood, he remembers them; he has not forgotten the cry of the afflicted.
13Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death,13Be gracious to me, LORD, take note of my affliction, because of those who hate me. You snatch me away from the gates of death,
14That I may tell of all Your praise In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Your salvation.14so I may declare everything for which you should be praised in the gates of the daughter of Zion, so I will rejoice in your deliverance.
15The nations have sunk down in the pit which they made; In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.15The nations have sunk down into the pit they made, their feet are ensnared in the trap they set.
16The LORD is known by the judgment He executes; The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Meditation. Selah16The LORD has made himself known, executing judgment. The wicked are ensnared by what their hands have made. Interlude
17The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God.17The wicked will turn back to where the dead are — all the nations that have forgotten God.
18For the needy shall not always be forgotten; The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.18For he will not always overlook the plight of the poor, nor will the hope of the afflicted perish forever.
19Arise, O LORD, Do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged in Your sight.19Rise up, LORD, do not let man prevail! The nations will be judged in your presence.
20Put them in fear, O LORD, That the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah20Make them afraid, LORD, Let the nations know that they are only human. Interlude
