Psalm 9

God’s Power and Justice

To the leader: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
   I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and exult in you;
   I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.


3 When my enemies turned back,
   they stumbled and perished before you.
4 For you have maintained my just cause;
   you have sat on the throne giving righteous judgement.


5 You have rebuked the nations, you have destroyed the wicked;
   you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemies have vanished in everlasting ruins;
   their cities you have rooted out;
   the very memory of them has perished.


7 But the Lord sits enthroned for ever,
   he has established his throne for judgement.
8 He judges the world with righteousness;
   he judges the peoples with equity.


9 The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,
   a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 And those who know your name put their trust in you,
   for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
