Psalm 9

I will give thanks, O Yahweh, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful acts; I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will praise Your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, they will fall and perish before You. For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging right. You have rebuked the nations; You have destroyed the wicked; You have put out their name forever and ever. The desolations of the enemy are ended forever; and You have uprooted the cities; their memory has perished with them. But Yahweh is seated forever; He has established His throne for judgment. And He shall judge the world in righteousness; He shall judge the peoples in uprightness. Yahweh also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of distress. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek You. Sing praises to Yahweh who dwells in Zion; declare His deeds among the nations. For He remembers them, the seeker of bloodshed; He does not forget the cry of the afflicted. Be gracious to me, O Yahweh; see my affliction from ones hating me, be lifting me up from the gates of death, so that I may declare all Your praises in the gates of the daughter of Zion; I will rejoice in Your salvation. The nations have sunk into the pit they made; their foot is taken in the net they hid. Yahweh has been known, He has executed judgment; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. A meditation, Selah. The wicked shall be turned to Sheol, all the nations forgetting God. For the needy shall not forever be forgotten; the hope of the poor shall not perish forever. Arise, O Yahweh! Do not let man have strength; let the nations be judged before Your face. O Yahweh, put fear in them; let the nations know they are but men. Selah.
