    Psalms 9
    King James Version

    1 I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart;
    I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.​
    2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee:
    I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.​

    3
    When mine enemies are turned back,
    they shall fall and perish at thy presence.​
    4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
    thou satest in the throne judging right.​
    5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen,
    thou hast destroyed the wicked,
    thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.​

    6
    O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end:
    and thou hast destroyed cities;
    their memorial is perished with them.​
    7 But the Lord shall endure for ever:
    he hath prepared his throne for judgment.​
    8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness,
    he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.​

    9
    The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
    a refuge in times of trouble.​
    10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
    for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.​

    11
    Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion:
    declare among the people his doings.​
    12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:
    he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.​

    13
    Have mercy upon me, O Lord;
    consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me,
    thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:​
    14 That I may shew forth all thy praise
    in the gates of the daughter of Zion:
    I will rejoice in thy salvation.​

    15
    The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made:
    in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.​
    16 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth:
    the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

    Higgaion. Selah.​

    17
    The wicked shall be turned into hell,
    and all the nations that forget God.​
    18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten:
    the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.​

    19
    Arise, O Lord;
    let not man prevail:
    let the heathen be judged in thy sight.​
    20 Put them in fear, O Lord:
    that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
