Thankful For God’s Justice

Psalm 9

“1I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart;”“I will tell of all Your marvelous works. 2I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. 3When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence. 4For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging in righteousness. 5You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever. “6O enemy, destructions are finished forever! And you have destroyed cities; Even their memory has perished.” 7But the LORD shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment.”“8fHe shall judge the world in righteousness, And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness. 9The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. 10And those who hknow Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. 11Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! iDeclare His deeds among the people. 12When He avenges blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble. 13Have mercy on me, O LORD!

I will show honor to you O Lord, with my entire soul and being. I will tell of all your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing songs of praise to your name, O most high. When my enemies are turned back they shall fall and perish at thy presence. For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sit on the throne judging right. You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever. O enemy, destructions are finished forever! And you have destroyed cities; Even their memory has perished.”But the LORD shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment.”“He shall judge the world in righteousness, And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness. The LORD will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of troubles and tribulations. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! iDeclare His deeds among the people. When He takes revenge for blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble. Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who are against me,”“You who lift me up from the gates of death, That I may tell of all Your praise In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice praise in Your salvation. 6nations have sunk down in the pit which they made; In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught. 16The LORD is known by the judgment He executes; The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. meditation. Selah Word Studies: judgment

The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. The needy shall not always be forgotten; The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever and shall rise again.”“Arise , O LORD, Do not let man prevail; Let the heathens be judged in Your sight. Put them in fear, O LORD, That the nations may know themselves”

Psalm9

I’m thanking you God with all my heart.

I will tell about all the wonderful things you have done.

You make me happy, so I will rejoice in you.

God Most High, I praise your name.

My enemies turned to run from you,

but they fell and were destroyed.

You listened to me from your throne like a good judge,

and you decided that I was right.

You told the nations how wrong they were.

You destroyed those evil people.

You erased their names from our memory forever and ever.

The enemy is finished!

You destroyed their cities.

There is nothing left to remind us of them.

The Lord set up his throne to bring justice,

and he will rule forever.

He judges everyone on earth fairly.

He judges all nations honestly.

Many people are suffering

crushed by the weight of their troubles.

But the Lord is a refuge for them,

a safe place they can run to.

Lord, those who know your name

come to you for protection.

And when they come,

you do not leave them without help.

Sing praises to the Lord, who sits as King in Zion.

Tell the nations about the great things he has done.

He punishes murderers

and remembers those who are in need.

When suffering people cry for help,

he does not ignore them.

They said this prayer: “Lord, be kind to me.

See how my enemies are hurting me.

Save me from the ‘gates of death.’

Then, at the gates of Jerusalem, I can sing praises to you.

I will be so happy because you saved me.”

Then those other nations have fallen into the pit they dug to catch others.

They have been caught in their own trap.

The Lord showed that he judges fairly.

The wicked were caught by what they did to hurt others.

Higgayon

Selah

The wicked people will go to the place of death,

as will all the nations that forget God.

It may seem that those who are poor and needy have been forgotten,

but God will not forget them.

He will not leave them without hope.

Lord, get up and judge the nations.

Don’t let anyone think they can win against you.

Teach them a lesson, Lord.

Let them know they are only human.
