Psalm 9. Confitebor tibi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The Second Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; *
    I will speak of all thy marvellous works.
  2. I will be glad and rejoice in thee; *
    yea, my songs will I make of thy Name, O thou Most Highest.
  3. While mine enemies are driven back, *
    they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
  4. For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; *
    thou art set in the throne that judgest right.
  5. Thou hast rebuked the heathen, and destroyed the ungodly; *
    thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
  6. 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.
  7. But the Lord shall endure for ever; *
    he hath also prepared his seat for judgment.
  8. For he shall judge the world in righteousness, *
    and minister true judgment unto the people.
  9. The Lord also will be a defence for the oppressed, *
    even a refuge in due time of trouble.
  10. And they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee; *
    for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.
  11. O praise the Lord which dwelleth in Sion; *
    show the people of his doings.
  12. For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them, *
    and forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.
  13. 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;
  14. That I may show all thy praises within the gates of the daughter of Sion: *
    I will rejoice in thy salvation.
  15. The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made; *
    in the same net which they hid privily is their foot taken.
  16. The Lord is known to execute judgment; *
    the ungodly is trapped in the work of his own hands.
  17. The wicked shall be turned to destruction, *
    and all the people that forget God.
  18. For the poor shall not alway be forgotten; *
    the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever.
  19. Up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand; *
    let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
  20. Put them in fear, O Lord, *
    that the heathen may know themselves to be but men.
