Psalm 9
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

I Will Give Thanks to the LORD

1To the overseer upon the death of Laban, chanting of David. I will praise, O Jehovah, with all my heart; I will recount all thy wonderful works.

2I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will play on the harp to thy name, O Most High.

3In the turning away of mine enemies backward, they shall be weak and perish from thy face.

4For thou didst my judgment and my cause; thou satest upon the throne judging justice.

5Thou didst rebuke the nations, thou didst destroy the unjust one, wiping off their name forever and ever.

6O enemy! desolations were wholly finished, and thou didst tear down cities; their remembrance perished with them.

7And Jehovah shall dwell forever: he prepared his throne for judgment.

8And he will judge the habitable globe in justice, he will judge peoples in uprightness.

9And Jehovah will be a height for the oppressed one, a height for times in straits.

10And they knowing thy name will trust in thee, for thou didst not forsake those seeking thee, O Jehovah.

11Play on the harp to Jehovah dwelling in Zion: announce among the peoples his doings.

12For he sought out bloods, be remembered them: he forget not the cry of the humble.

13Compassionate me, O Jehovah: see my affliction from those hating me, thou lifting me up from the gates of death:

14So that I shall recount all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

15The nations sank into the pit they made: in the net they hid, their foot was taken by it.

16And Jehovah was known by the judgment he did: by the work of his hands the unjust was snared. Meditation. Silence.

17The unjust shall be turned away into hades, all the nations forgetting God.

18For the needy shall not be forgotten forever: the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

19Arise, O Jehovah; man shall not be strengthened: the nations shall be judged before thee.

20Put fear to them, O Jehovah: the nations shall know they are man. Silence.
