Psalm 9

Psalm 9[a][b]

For the director of music. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.” A psalm of David.

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
    I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

My enemies turn back;
    they stumble and perish before you.
For you have upheld my right and my cause,
    sitting enthroned as the righteous judge.
You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
    you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies,
    you have uprooted their cities;
    even the memory of them has perished.

The Lord reigns forever;
    he has established his throne for judgment.
He rules the world in righteousness
    and judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.

11 Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion;
    proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 For he who avenges blood remembers;
    he does not ignore the cries of the afflicted.

13 Lord, see how my enemies persecute me!
    Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 that I may declare your praises
    in the gates of Daughter Zion,
    and there rejoice in your salvation.

15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;
    their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice;
    the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[c]
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,
    all the nations that forget God.
18 But God will never forget the needy;
    the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

19 Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph;
    let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Strike them with terror, Lord;
    let the nations know they are only mortal.

詩篇 9

稱頌上帝的公義

大衛的詩,交給樂長,調用「慕拉辨」[a]

1耶和華啊,
我要全心全意地讚美你,
傳揚你一切奇妙的作為。
我要因你歡喜快樂,
至高者啊,我要歌頌你的名。
我的仇敵必在你面前敗退,
倒地身亡。
你坐在寶座上按公義審判,
你為我主持公道。
你斥責列國,消滅惡人,
永永遠遠抹去他們的名字。
仇敵永遠滅亡了,
你把他們的城池連根拔起,
無人再記得他們。
耶和華永遠掌權,
祂已設立施行審判的寶座。
祂要以公義審判世界,
在萬民中伸張正義。
耶和華是受欺壓之人的避難所,
是他們患難之時的避風港。
10 耶和華啊,
凡認識你名的人都必信靠你,
因為你從來不丟棄尋求你的人。
11 要歌頌住在錫安的耶和華,
在列邦傳揚祂的作為。
12 祂追討血債,顧念受害者,
不忘傾聽受苦者的呼求。
13 耶和華啊,
看看仇敵對我的迫害!
求你憐憫我,
救我離開死亡之門,
14 我好在錫安的城門口稱頌你,
因你的拯救而歡樂。
15 列邦挖了陷阱卻自陷其中,
設下網羅卻纏住自己的腳。
16 耶和華彰顯了自己的公義,
使惡人自食其果。(細拉)
17 惡人必下陰間,這是所有忘記上帝之人的結局。
18 貧乏人不會永遠被遺忘,
受苦人的希望也不會一直落空。
19 耶和華啊,求你起來,
別讓人向你誇勝,
願你審判列邦。
20 耶和華啊,
求你使列邦恐懼戰抖,
讓他們明白自己不過是人。(細拉)
