1 I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

Psalm 9:1-2
  • Lord, I will give You the glory for Your mighty acts.
  • You have given me great things: life, salvation, healing, deliverance, peace.
  • Therefore, I will offer my praise with all that is within me.
  • I will be overjoyed in Your generosity to all of mankind and to me.
  • I will declare You Almighty and extol Your praiseworthy name.
  • You are worthy of my heartfelt praise!

3 When my enemies turn back,
They shall fall and perish at Your presence.
4 For You have maintained my right and my cause;
You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.
5 You have rebuked the nations,
You have destroyed the wicked;
You have blotted out their name forever and ever.

6 O enemy, destructions are finished forever!
And you have destroyed cities;
Even their memory has perished.
7 But the LORD shall endure forever;
He has prepared His throne for judgment.
8 He shall judge the world in righteousness,
And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.

Psalm 9:3-8
  • You are the defender of my soul. My enemies are rebuffed at Your sight.
  • My enemies fall at Your presence. Defend me, Lord and make me safe.
  • You have always protected my right and my cause, sitting on the throne of heaven, adjudicating my disputes against evil men.
  • You rebuke nations and destroy the wicked, You have made the memory of them disappear.
  • My enemies have taken plunder from cities and destroyed nations. They have been destructive, even in my life.
  • They have wiped out entire peoples in their vicious attacks.
  • But now, their destructions are over, in the name of my Lord!
  • They will no longer rule by fear over me. They are stopped from their destructions and made to cease their attacks on the people of God.
  • The Lord will exist and thrive and rule forever. His throne is established for all time and beyond.
  • He is the righteous judge, and He will rule for the righteous against evil men and women who seek harm against the righteous children of God.
  • I will fear my enemies no more. I will stand in courage against them, and in the name of Jesus I will be safe!

9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,

A refuge in times of trouble.

10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;

For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Psalm 9:9-10
  • The LORD is a powerful refuge, saving souls from oppression and trouble.
  • I can trust in Him. We can trust in Him.
  • He will be faithful. He will not forsake us, no matter what!
  • The Lord is faithful, and will not fail us in the midst of trouble or in prosperity.

11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion!
Declare His deeds among the people.
12 When He avenges blood, He remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the humble.

Psalm 9:11-12

  • I will sing the Lord’s praises, for He is worthy!
  • The Lord lives in Zion, therefore, I will be His Zion.
  • I will be His holy hill. I will make a place for the LORD to inhabit. My praises will make room for Him.
  • I will praise Him, and I will declare His works and deeds among the people who surround me.
  • When the righteous judge of the earth begins to avenge the weak, the poor, the oppressed, He will remember their plight and rescue them from their enemies.
  • The Lord is the Avenger of the weak.
  • He does not forget the petition of the humble.
  • He hears from heaven, He knows our plight, He remembers our cries before Him.

  • Let this praise be only for You, O LORD.
