The Book of Psalms
I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all thy marvellous 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 turn back, they fall and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging righteously.
5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemy are come to an end in perpetual destruction: and thou hast uprooted their cities; even the memory of them is perished.
7 But the LORD shall reign for ever: he hath established his throne for judgment.
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall govern the people with justice.
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 For he that avengeth blood remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the afflicted.
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 praises in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15 The nations 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 return to the grave, and all the nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged before thee.
20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
