Psalm 9

Snow in Vermont Yesterday! 

Psalm 9 or
Confitebor tibi
1I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with my whole heart; *
I will tell of all your marvelous works.
2I will be glad and rejoice in you; *
I will sing to your Name, O Most High.
3When my enemies are driven back, *
they will stumble and perish at your presence.
4For you have maintained my right and my cause; *
you sit upon your throne judging right.
5You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; *
you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, *
their cities plowed under, the memory of them perished;
7But the LORD is enthroned for ever; *
he has set up this throne for judgment.
8It is he who rules the world with righteousness; *
he judges the peoples with equity.
9The LORD will be a refuge for the oppressed, *
a refuge in time of trouble.
10Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, *
for you never forsake those who seek you, O LORD.
11Sing praise to the LORD who dwells in Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.
12The Avenger of blood will remember them; *
he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13Have 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;
14So that I may tell of all your praises
and rejoice in your salvation *
in the gates of the city of Zion.
15The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, *
and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.
16The LORD is known by his acts of justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.
17The wicked shall be given over to the grave, *
and also all the people that forget God.
18For the needy shall not always be forgotten, *
and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19Rise up, O LORD, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; *
let them be judged before you.
20Put fear upon them, O LORD; *
let the ungodly know they are but mortal.
