1 I will praise
thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy
2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to
thy name, O thou most High.
3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish
at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest
in the throne judging right.
5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked,
thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and
thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with
7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister
judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge
in times of trouble.
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:
for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare
among the people his doings.
12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:
he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
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
14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the
daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the
net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the
wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations
that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation
of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged
in thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves
to be but men. Selah.
