Psalm 9. Confitebor tibi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Second Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. I will give thanks to 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 to your Name, O Most High.
  3. When my enemies are driven back, *
    they will stumble and perish at your presence.
  4. For you have maintained my right and my cause; *
    you sit upon your throne judging right.
  5. You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; *
    you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
  6. As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, *
    their cities ploughed under, the memory of them perished;
  7. But the Lord is enthroned for ever; *
    he has set up his throne for judgment.
  8. It is he who rules the world with righteousness; *
    he judges the peoples with equity.
  9. The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, *
    a refuge in time of trouble.
  10. Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, *
    for you never forsake those who seek you, O Lord.
  11. Sing praise to the Lord who dwells in Zion; *
    proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.
  12. The Avenger of blood will remember them; *
    he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.
  13. 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;
  14. So that I may tell of all your praises and rejoice in your salvation *
    in the gates of the city of Zion.
  15. The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, *
    and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.
  16. The Lord is known by his acts of justice; *
    the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.
  17. The wicked shall be given over to the grave, *
    and also all the peoples that forget God.
  18. For the needy shall not always be forgotten, *
    and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
  19. Rise up, O Lord, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; *
    let them be judged before you.
  20. Put fear upon them, O Lord; *
    let the ungodly know they are but mortal.
