Amplified Bible

Psalm 9

A Psalm of Thanksgiving for God’s Justice.

To the Chief Musician; on [a]Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.

1I will give thanks and praise the Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell aloud all Your wonders and marvelous deeds.

I will rejoice and exult in you;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.


When my enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish before You.

For You have maintained my right and my cause;
You have sat on the throne judging righteously.

You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked and unrepentant;
You have wiped out their name forever and ever.

The enemy has been cut off and has vanished in everlasting ruins,
You have uprooted their cities;
The very memory of them has perished.


But the Lord will remain and sit enthroned forever;
He has prepared and established His throne for judgment.

And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the nations with fairness (equity).

The Lord also will be a refuge and a stronghold for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble;
10 
And those who know Your name [who have experienced Your precious mercy] will put their confident trust in You,
For You, O Lord, have not abandoned those who seek You.

11 
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion;
Declare among the peoples His [great and wondrous] deeds.
12 
For He who avenges blood [unjustly shed] remembers them (His people);
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted and abused.
13 
Have mercy on me and be gracious to me, O Lord;
See how I am afflicted by those who hate me,
You who lift me up from the gates of death,
14 
That I may tell aloud all Your praises,
That in the gates of the daughter of Zion (Jerusalem)
I may rejoice in Your salvation and Your help.
15 
The nations have sunk down in the pit which they have made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 
The Lord has made Himself known;
He executes judgment;
The wicked are trapped by the work of their own hands. Higgaion (meditation) Selah.

17 
The wicked will turn to Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead),
Even all the nations who forget God.
18 
For the poor will not always be forgotten,
Nor the hope of the burdened perish forever.
19 
Arise, O Lord, do not let man prevail;
Let the nations be judged before You.
20 
Put them in [reverent] [b]fear of You, O Lord,
So that the nations may know they are but [frail and mortal] men. Selah.

  1. Psalm 9:1 A transliteration of the Hebrew, whose meaning is unknown. Possibly referring to a tune titled “Death to the Son.” Perhaps for soprano voices.
  2. Psalm 9:20 The “fear” of God is a common concept in the OT, but is difficult to translate into English. It is not simply a matter of “fear” in the modern English sense. Nor is it only a sentiment of deep reverence. It implies obedience, as well.

诗篇 9

称颂上帝的公义

大卫的诗,交给乐长,调用“慕拉辨”[a]

1耶和华啊,
我要全心全意地赞美你,
传扬你一切奇妙的作为。
我要因你欢喜快乐,
至高者啊,我要歌颂你的名。
我的仇敌必在你面前败退,
倒地身亡。
你坐在宝座上按公义审判,
你为我主持公道。
你斥责列国,消灭恶人,
永永远远抹去他们的名字。
仇敌永远灭亡了,
你把他们的城池连根拔起,
无人再记得他们。
耶和华永远掌权,
祂已设立施行审判的宝座。
祂要以公义审判世界,
在万民中伸张正义。
耶和华是受欺压之人的避难所,
是他们患难之时的避风港。
10 耶和华啊,
凡认识你名的人都必信靠你,
因为你从来不丢弃寻求你的人。
11 要歌颂住在锡安的耶和华,
在列邦传扬祂的作为。
12 祂追讨血债,顾念受害者,
不忘倾听受苦者的呼求。
13 耶和华啊,
看看仇敌对我的迫害!
求你怜悯我,
救我离开死亡之门,
14 我好在锡安的城门口称颂你,
因你的拯救而欢乐。
15 列邦挖了陷阱却自陷其中,
设下网罗却缠住自己的脚。
16 耶和华彰显了自己的公义,
使恶人自食其果。(细拉)
17 恶人必下阴间,这是所有忘记上帝之人的结局。
18 贫乏人不会永远被遗忘,
受苦人的希望也不会一直落空。
19 耶和华啊,求你起来,
别让人向你夸胜,
愿你审判列邦。
20 耶和华啊,
求你使列邦恐惧战抖,
让他们明白自己不过是人。(细拉)
