Psalm 9 Confitebor tibi


1   I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with  | my whole | heart; *
I will tell of | all your  | marve-lous | works.
2   I will be glad and re-/ joice in  | you; *
I will sing to  | your Name, |  O Most | High.
3   When my enemies are  | driv-en | back, *
they will stumble and  | per-ish | at your |  presence.
4   For you have maintained my right  | and my | cause; *
you sit upon  | your throne  | judging | right.
5   You have rebuked the ungodly and de-/ stroyed the  | wicked; *
you have blotted out their  | name for | ever and  | ever.
6   As for the enemy, they are finished,  | in perpetual  | ruin, *
their cities plowed under, the  | mem-ory | of them | perished;
7   But the LORD is  | enthroned for  | ever; *
he has set  | up this |  throne for | judgment.
8   It is he who rules the  | world with | righteousness; *
he  | judges the  | peoples with  | equity.
9   The LORD will be a refuge for  | the op- | pressed, *
a  | refuge in  | time of  | trouble.
10   Those who know your Name will put their  | trust in | you, *
for you never forsake those  | who seek | you, O | LORD.
11   Sing praise to the LORD who  | dwells in | Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples  | the things | he has |  done.
12   The Avenger of blood will  | re-member  | them; *
he will not forget the cry of the  | af-flict- | ed.
13   Have pity on  | me, O | LORD; *
see the misery I suffer from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up  | from the | gate of | death;
14   So that I may tell of all your praises and rejoice in your  | sal-va- | tion *
in the gates of the  | city of  | Zion.
15   The ungodly have fallen into the  | pit they | dug, *
and in the snare they set  | is their | own foot |  caught.
16   The LORD is known by his  | acts of | justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the  | works of | their own | hands.
17   The wicked shall be given over  | to the | grave, *
and also all the  | people that  | for-get  | God.
18   For the needy shall not always  | be forgot-  |  ten, *
and the hope of the poor shall  | not per- | ish for | ever.
19   Rise up, O LORD, let not the ungodly have the  | up-per | hand; *
let them  | be judged  | be-fore | you.
20   Put fear upon  | them, O | LORD; *
let the ungodly  | know they | are but  | mortal.
