P S A L . I X (9)
2 I wil be glad, and rejoyce in thee: I wil sing praise to thy Name, O most High,
3 For that mine enemies are turned backe: they shall fall, and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause: thou art set in the throne, and judgest right.
5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen: thou hast destroyed the wicked: thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6 O enemie, destructions are come to a perpetuall ende, and thou hast destroyed the cities: their memoriall is perished with them.
7 But the Lord shal sit for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgement.
8 For hee shall judge the world in righteousness, and shall judge the people with equitie.
9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the poore, a refuge in due time, even in affliction.
10 And they that know thy Name, will trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not failed them that seeke thee.
11 Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion, shew the people his works.
12 For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembreth it, and forgetteth not the complaint of the poore.
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 all thy praises within the gate of the daughter of Zion, and rejoyce in thy salvation.
15 The heathen are sunken downe in the pit, that they made: in the net that they hid, is their foote taken.
16 The Lord is knowen by executing judgement: the wicked is snared in the worke of his owne hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall turne into hell, and all nations that forget God.
18 For the poore shall not always be forgotten: the hope of the afflicted shall not perish forever.
19 Up Lord: let not man prevaile: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20 Put them in feare, O Lord, that the heathen may know that they are but men. Selah.
