Psalms 9:1-20
I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds 9 1 To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben. 2 A Psalm of David. 1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your g wonderful deeds. 2 I will be glad and h exult in you; I will i sing praise to your name, j O Most High. 3 When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish before 1 your presence. 4 For you have k maintained my just cause; you have l sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment. 5 You have m rebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish; you have n blotted out their name forever and ever. 6 The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins; their cities you rooted out; the very memory of them has perished. 7 But the Lord sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for justice, 8 and he o judges the world with righteousness; he p judges the peoples with uprightness. 9 The Lord is q a stronghold for r the oppressed, a stronghold in s times of trouble. 10 And those who t know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord , have not forsaken those who seek you. 11 Sing praises to the Lord , who u sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples his v deeds! 12 For he who w avenges blood is mindful of them; he x does not forget the cry of the afflicted. 13 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, 14 that I may recount all your praises, that in the gates of a the daughter of Zion I may b rejoice in your salvation. 15 The nations have sunk in c the pit that they made; in d the net that they hid, their own foot has been caught. 16 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 17 The wicked shall f return to Sheol, all the nations that g forget God. 18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and h the hope of the poor shall not perish forever. 19 i Arise, O Lord ! Let not j man prevail; let the nations be judged before you! 20 Put them in fear, O Lord ! Let the nations know that they are but j men! Selah

9 1 εἰς τὸ τέλος ὑπὲρ τῶν κρυφίων τοῦ υἱοῦ ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ 2 ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι κύριε ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ μου διηγήσομαι πάντα τὰ θαυμάσιά σου 3 εὐφρανθήσομαι καὶ ἀγαλλιάσομαι ἐν σοί ψαλῶ τῷ ὀνόματί σου ὕψιστε 4 ἐν τῷ ἀποστραφῆναι τὸν ἐχθρόν μου εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω ἀσθενήσουσιν καὶ ἀπολοῦνται ἀπὸ προσώπου σου 5 ὅτι ἐποίησας τὴν κρίσιν μου καὶ τὴν δίκην μου ἐκάθισας ἐπὶ θρόνου ὁ κρίνων δικαιοσύνην 6 ἐπετίμησας ἔθνεσιν καὶ ἀπώλετο ὁ ἀσεβής τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῶν ἐξήλειψας εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος 7 τοῦ ἐχθροῦ ἐξέλιπον αἱ ῥομφαῖαι εἰς τέλος καὶ πόλεις καθεῖλες ἀπώλετο τὸ μνημόσυνον αὐτῶν μετ’ ἤχους 8 καὶ ὁ κύριος εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα μένει ἡτοίμασεν ἐν κρίσει τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ 9 καὶ αὐτὸς κρινεῖ τὴν οἰκουμένην ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ κρινεῖ λαοὺς ἐν εὐθύτητι 10 καὶ ἐγένετο κύριος καταφυγὴ τῷ πένητι βοηθὸς ἐν εὐκαιρίαις ἐν θλίψει 11 καὶ ἐλπισάτωσαν ἐπὶ σὲ οἱ γινώσκοντες τὸ ὄνομά σου ὅτι οὐκ ἐγκατέλιπες τοὺς ἐκζητοῦντάς σε κύριε 12 ψάλατε τῷ κυρίῳ τῷ κατοικοῦντι ἐν Σιων ἀναγγείλατε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα αὐτοῦ 13 ὅτι ἐκζητῶν τὰ αἵματα αὐτῶν ἐμνήσθη οὐκ ἐπελάθετο τῆς κραυγῆς τῶν πενήτων 14 ἐλέησόν με κύριε ἰδὲ τὴν ταπείνωσίν μου ἐκ τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου ὁ ὑψῶν με ἐκ τῶν πυλῶν τοῦ θανάτου 15 ὅπως ἂν ἐξαγγείλω πάσας τὰς αἰνέσεις σου ἐν ταῖς πύλαις τῆς θυγατρὸς Σιων ἀγαλλιάσομαι ἐπὶ τῷ σωτηρίῳ σου 16 ἐνεπάγησαν ἔθνη ἐν διαφθορᾷ ᾗ ἐποίησαν ἐν παγίδι ταύτῃ ᾗ ἔκρυψαν συνελήμφθη ὁ ποὺς αὐτῶν 17 γινώσκεται κύριος κρίματα ποιῶν ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ συνελήμφθη ὁ ἁμαρτωλός ᾠδὴ διαψάλματος 18 ἀποστραφήτωσαν οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ εἰς τὸν ᾅδην πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τὰ ἐπιλανθανόμενα τοῦ θεοῦ 19 ὅτι οὐκ εἰς τέλος ἐπιλησθήσεται ὁ πτωχός ἡ ὑπομονὴ τῶν πενήτων οὐκ ἀπολεῖται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 20 ἀνάστηθι κύριε μὴ κραταιούσθω ἄνθρωπος κριθήτωσαν ἔθνη ἐνώπιόν σου 21 κατάστησον κύριε νομοθέτην ἐπ’ αὐτούς γνώτωσαν ἔθνη ὅτι ἄνθρωποί εἰσιν διάψαλμα 22 ἵνα τί κύριε ἀφέστηκας μακρόθεν ὑπερορᾷς ἐν εὐκαιρίαις ἐν θλίψει 23 ἐν τῷ ὑπερηφανεύεσθαι τὸν ἀσεβῆ ἐμπυρίζεται ὁ πτωχός συλλαμβάνονται ἐν διαβουλίοις οἷς διαλογίζονται 24 ὅτι ἐπαινεῖται ὁ ἁμαρτωλὸς ἐν ταῖς ἐπιθυμίαις τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ ἀδικῶν ἐνευλογεῖται 25 παρώξυνεν τὸν κύριον ὁ ἁμαρτωλός κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐκζητήσει οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ θεὸς ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ 26 βεβηλοῦνται αἱ ὁδοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐν παντὶ καιρῷ ἀνταναιρεῖται τὰ κρίματά σου ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ κατακυριεύσει 27 εἶπεν γὰρ ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ σαλευθῶ ἀπὸ γενεᾶς εἰς γενεὰν ἄνευ κακοῦ 28 οὗ ἀρᾶς τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ γέμει καὶ πικρίας καὶ δόλου ὑπὸ τὴν γλῶσσαν αὐτοῦ κόπος καὶ πόνος 29 ἐγκάθηται ἐνέδρᾳ μετὰ πλουσίων ἐν ἀποκρύφοις ἀποκτεῖναι ἀθῷον οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν πένητα ἀποβλέπουσιν 30 ἐνεδρεύει ἐν ἀποκρύφῳ ὡς λέων ἐν τῇ μάνδρᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐνεδρεύει τοῦ ἁρπάσαι πτωχόν ἁρπάσαι πτωχὸν ἐν τῷ ἑλκύσαι αὐτόν 31 ἐν τῇ παγίδι αὐτοῦ ταπεινώσει αὐτόν κύψει καὶ πεσεῖται ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν κατακυριεῦσαι τῶν πενήτων 32 εἶπεν γὰρ ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐπιλέλησται ὁ θεός ἀπέστρεψεν τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ τοῦ μὴ βλέπειν εἰς τέλος 33 ἀνάστηθι κύριε ὁ θεός ὑψωθήτω ἡ χείρ σου μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ τῶν πενήτων 34 ἕνεκεν τίνος παρώξυνεν ὁ ἀσεβὴς τὸν θεόν εἶπεν γὰρ ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐκζητήσει 35 βλέπεις ὅτι σὺ πόνον καὶ θυμὸν κατανοεῖς τοῦ παραδοῦναι αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖράς σου σοὶ οὖν ἐγκαταλέλειπται ὁ πτωχός ὀρφανῷ σὺ ἦσθα βοηθῶν 36 σύντριψον τὸν βραχίονα τοῦ ἁμαρτωλοῦ καὶ πονηροῦ ζητηθήσεται ἡ ἁμαρτία αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ μὴ εὑρεθῇ δι’ αὐτήν 37 βασιλεύσει κύριος εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος ἀπολεῖσθε ἔθνη ἐκ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ 38 τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν τῶν πενήτων εἰσήκουσεν κύριος τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν προσέσχεν τὸ οὖς σου 39 κρῖναι ὀρφανῷ καὶ ταπεινῷ ἵνα μὴ προσθῇ ἔτι τοῦ μεγαλαυχεῖν ἄνθρωπος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς
Sermon notes
The LORD has established his throne for justice Intro how right wing gets angry about sacrilege/sanctity. left wing about oppression and liberation. But the Bible holds both together; because of sacrilege, there is oppression. God will undo oppression, and where we follow his guidelines, there will be less of it. 1. Praise God for his justice (v1-6) v1-2 Not a lament, but a hymn of praise v3-6 Rehearsing God's justice and praising Him 2. The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed (v7-12) v7-8 what does this mean in the 'present tense'. justice; 'equity'/uprightness. v9-10. Stronghold for the oppressed. What it means to be 'poor' in the Bible. 'Afflicted' (eg Psalm 102). v11-12 The mighty judge does not forget the cry of the afflicted (cf Psalm 8; mighty yet eye on the weak) 3. There is bright hope for the future (v13-20) v13-14 how to pray in light of all this v15-16 the 'prophetic perfect' v17-18 God will put things right. The needy won't be forgotten; the hope of the poor won't die. v19-20 this is like the simple prayer, 'Come Lord Jesus' FCF: oppression, affliction and 'neediness'. Those who know it (because it is painfully revealed in them) and those who don't. Person - Jesus the friend to the needy and outcast. He preaches that the poor in spirit are blessed, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Work - becomes the needy one. Alone, naked, with no money or clothes, or food. Thirsty. Union - I know that affliction gives way to glory. And so I can rejoice in my suffering now. Wrap-up Come, Lord Jesus
