Psalms 9 (asv)
I will show forth all thy marvellous works.
9:2I will be glad and exult in thee;
9:3When mine enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish at thy presence.
9:4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.
9:5Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked;
Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
9:6The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever;
And the cities which thou hast overthrown,
The very remembrance of them is perished.
9:7But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment;
He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
9:9Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed,
A high tower in times of trouble;
9:10And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee;
For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
Declare among the people his doings.
9:12For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them;
He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.
Behold my affliction which I suffer of them that hate me,
Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
9:14That I may show forth all thy praise.
In the gates of the daughter of Zion
I will rejoice in thy salvation.
9:15The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made:
In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
9:17The wicked shall be turned back unto Sheol,
Even all the nations that forget God.
9:18For the needy shall not alway be forgotten,
Let the nations be judged in thy sight.
Let the nations know themselves to be but men.
