Psalm 9. Confitebor tibi.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The Second Day - Morning Prayer.
- I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; *
I will speak of all thy marvellous works.
- I will be glad and rejoice in thee; *
yea, my songs will I make of thy Name, O thou Most Highest.
- While mine enemies are driven back, *
they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
- For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; *
thou art set in the throne that judgest right.
- Thou hast rebuked the heathen, and destroyed the ungodly; *
thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
- O thou enemy, thy destructions are come to a perpetual end; *
even as the cities which thou hast destroyed, whose memorial is perished with them.
- But the Lord shall endure for ever; *
he hath also prepared his seat for judgment.
- For he shall judge the world in righteousness, *
and minister true judgment unto the people.
- The Lord also will be a defence for the oppressed, *
even a refuge in due time of trouble.
- And they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee; *
for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.
- O praise the Lord which dwelleth in Sion; *
show the people of his doings.
- For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them, *
and forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.
- Have mercy upon me, O Lord; consider the trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, *
thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
- That I may show all thy praises within the gates of the daughter of Sion: *
I will rejoice in thy salvation.
- The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made; *
in the same net which they hid privily is their foot taken.
- The Lord is known to execute judgment; *
the ungodly is trapped in the work of his own hands.
- The wicked shall be turned to destruction, *
and all the people that forget God.
- For the poor shall not alway be forgotten; *
the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever.
- Up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand; *
let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
- Put them in fear, O Lord, *
that the heathen may know themselves to be but men.
