The Lord reigns, so our job is to rejoice; his job is to deliver. He will certainly do his job, so let us resolve to do ours.
Psalms 9:1-20
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your g wonderful deeds.
I will be glad
and h exult in you;
I will i sing praise to your name, j O Most High.
When my enemies turn back,
they stumble
and perish before 1 your presence.
For you have k maintained my just cause;
you have l sat on the throne,
giving righteous judgment.
You have m rebuked the nations;
you have made the wicked perish;
you have n blotted out their name forever and ever.
The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;
their cities you rooted out;
the very memory of them has perished.
But the Lord sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
and he o judges the world with righteousness;
he p judges the peoples with uprightness.
The Lord is q a stronghold for r the oppressed,
a stronghold in s times of trouble.
And those who t know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O Lord , have not forsaken those who seek you.
Sing praises to the Lord ,
who u sits enthroned in Zion!
Tell among the peoples his v deeds!
For he who w avenges blood is mindful of them;
he x does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
y Be gracious to me, O Lord !
See my affliction from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from z the gates of death,
that I may recount all your praises,
that in the gates of a the daughter of Zion I may b rejoice in your salvation.
The nations have sunk in c the pit that they made;
in d the net that they hid,
their own foot has been caught.
The Lord has made himself e known;
he has executed judgment;
the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion. 1 Selah
The wicked shall f return to Sheol,
all the nations that g forget God.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten,
and h the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
i Arise, O Lord !
Let not j man prevail;
let the nations be judged before you!
Put them in fear, O Lord !
Let the nations know that they are but j men! Selah
