Salmos 9

Al director musical. Sígase la tonada de «La muerte del hijo». Salmo de David.

Álef

1Quiero alabarte, Señor, con todo el corazón,
    y contar todas tus maravillas.
Quiero alegrarme y regocijarme en ti,
    y cantar salmos a tu nombre, oh Altísimo.

Bet

Mis enemigos retroceden;
    tropiezan y perecen ante ti.
Porque tú me has hecho justicia, me has vindicado;
    tú, juez justo, ocupas tu trono.

Guímel

Reprendiste a los paganos, destruiste a los malvados;
    ¡para siempre borraste su memoria!
Desgracia sin fin cayó sobre el enemigo;
    arrancaste de raíz sus ciudades,
    y hasta su recuerdo se ha desvanecido.

He

Pero el Señor reina por siempre;
    para emitir juicio ha establecido su trono.
Juzgará al mundo con justicia;
    gobernará a los pueblos con equidad.

Vav

El Señor es refugio de los oprimidos;
    es su baluarte en momentos de angustia.

10 En ti confían los que conocen tu nombre,
    porque tú, Señor, jamás abandonas a los que te buscan.

Zayin

11 Canten salmos al Señor, el rey de Sión;
    proclamen sus proezas entre las naciones.
12 El vengador de los inocentes[a] se acuerda de ellos;
    no pasa por alto el clamor de los afligidos.

Jet

13 Ten compasión de mí, Señor;
    mira cómo me afligen los que me odian.
Sácame de las puertas de la muerte,
14     para que en las puertas de Jerusalén[b]
    proclame tus alabanzas y me regocije en tu salvación.

Tet

15 Han caído los paganos
    en la fosa que han cavado;
sus pies quedaron atrapados
    en la red que ellos mismos escondieron.

16 Al Señor se le conoce porque imparte justicia;
    el malvado cae en la trampa que él mismo tendió. Higaión. Selah

Yod

17 Bajan al sepulcro los malvados,
    todos los paganos que de Dios se olvidan.

Caf

18 Pero el necesitado no será olvidado para siempre,
    ni para siempre se perderá la esperanza del pobre.

19 ¡Levántate, Señor!
    No dejes que el hombre prevalezca;
    ¡haz que las naciones comparezcan ante ti!
20 Infúndeles terror, Señor;
    ¡que los pueblos sepan que son simples mortales! Selah

Psalm 9

Psalm 9

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

Lord, I will give thanks to you with all my heart.
    I will tell about all the wonderful things you have done.
I will be glad and full of joy because of you.
    Most High God, I will sing the praises of your name.

My enemies turn back.
    They fall down and die right in front of you.
You have proved that I haven’t done anything wrong.
    You have sat on your throne and judged fairly.
You have punished the nations. You have destroyed evil people.
    You have erased their names from your book for ever and ever.
My enemies have been destroyed forever.
    You have leveled their cities to the ground.
    Even the memory of them is gone.

The Lord rules forever.
    He has set up his throne so that he can judge people.
He rules the world in keeping with what is right.
    He judges all its people fairly.
The Lord is a place of safety for those who have been treated badly.
    He keeps them safe in times of trouble.
10 Lord, those who know you will trust in you.
    You have never deserted those who look to you.

11 Sing the praises of the Lord. He rules from his throne in Zion.
    Tell among the nations what he has done.
12 The God who pays back murderers remembers.
    He doesn’t forget the cries of those who are hurting.

13 Lord, see how badly my enemies treat me!
    Help me! Don’t let me go down to the gates of death!
14 Then I can give praise to you
    at the gates of the city of Zion.
There I will be full of joy
    because you have saved me.
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 to be fair by the things he does.
    Evil people are trapped by what they have done.
17 Sinful people go down to the place of the dead.
    So do all the nations that forget God.
18 But God will never forget needy people.
    The hope of those who are hurting will never die.

19 Lord, rise up. Don’t let people win the battle.
    Let the nations come to you and be judged.
20 Lord, strike them with terror.
Let the nations know they are only human beings.
