To the chief Musician upon Muth-labben, A Psalm of David.
1 I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy a works.
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 a 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 them.
7 But the Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for a.
8 And he shall a the world in b, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The Lord also will be a a for the b, a refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know thy a will put their b in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11 Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: a among the people his doings.
12 When he a b for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the c.
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 of death:
14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy a.
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the a which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is a in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned into a, and all the nations that b 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.
