1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all thy marvellous works. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High
3 because my enemies are turned back; they shall fall and perish at thy presence. 4 For thou hast accomplished my judgment and my cause; thou didst sit in the throne judging according to righteousness. 5 Thou hast reprehended the Gentiles, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. 6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and the cities that thou hast destroyed; their memorial is perished with them.
7 But the LORD shall endure for ever; he has prepared his throne for judgment. 8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall judge the peoples in uprightness. 9 The LORD also will be a refuge to the humble, a refuge for the time of trouble. 10 And those that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, O LORD, hast not forsaken those that seek thee.
11 Sing unto the LORD, he who dwells in Zion; declare among the people his doings. 12 When he makes requirement for blood, he remembers them; he does not forget the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer from those that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: 14 that I may show forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy saving health.
15 The Gentiles are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid their own foot is taken. 16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he has executed; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion (meditate on this for ever). Selah.
17 The wicked shall be put into Sheol, all the Gentiles that forget God. 18 For the humble shall not always be forgotten: the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
