Psalm 9. Confitebor tibi.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Second Day - Morning Prayer.
- I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; *
I will tell of all your marvelous works.
- I will be glad and rejoice in you; *
I will sing to your Name, O Most High.
- When my enemies are driven back, *
they will stumble and perish at your presence.
- For you have maintained my right and my cause; *
you sit upon your throne judging right.
- You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; *
you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
- As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, *
their cities ploughed under, the memory of them perished;
- But the Lord is enthroned for ever; *
he has set up his throne for judgment.
- It is he who rules the world with righteousness; *
he judges the peoples with equity.
- The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, *
a refuge in time of trouble.
- Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, *
for you never forsake those who seek you, O Lord.
- Sing praise to the Lord who dwells in Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.
- The Avenger of blood will remember them; *
he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.
- Have pity on me, O Lord; *
see the misery I suffer from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from the gate of death;
- So that I may tell of all your praises and rejoice in your salvation *
in the gates of the city of Zion.
- The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, *
and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.
- The Lord is known by his acts of justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.
- The wicked shall be given over to the grave, *
and also all the peoples that forget God.
- For the needy shall not always be forgotten, *
and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
- Rise up, O Lord, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; *
let them be judged before you.
- Put fear upon them, O Lord; *
let the ungodly know they are but mortal.
