A Psalm of Thanksgiving for God's Justice.
For the choir director; on Muth-labben. F77 A Psalm of David.
1 I will give thanks to the LORD with all my R171 heart;
I will tell R172 of all Your wonders. F78
2 I will be glad and exult R173 in You;
I will sing R174 praise to Your name, O Most R175 High.
3 When my enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish R176 before You.
4 For You have maintained R177 my F79 just cause;
You have sat on the throne judging R178 F80 righteously.
5 You have rebuked R179 the nations, You have destroyed the wicked;
You have blotted R180 out their name forever and ever.
6 The F81 enemy has come to an end in perpetual ruins,
And You have uprooted the cities;
The very memory R181 of them has perished.
7 But the LORD R182 abides F82 forever;
He has established His throne R183 for judgment,
8 And He will judge R184 the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
9 The F83 LORD also will be a stronghold R185 for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble;
10 And those F84 who know R186 Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O LORD, have not forsaken R187 those who seek You.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells R188 in Zion;
Declare R189 among the peoples His deeds.
12 For He R190 who requires F85 blood remembers them;
He does not forget the R191 cry of the afflicted.
13 Be gracious to me, O LORD;
See my affliction from those who R192 hate me,
You who lift R193 me up from the gates of death,
14 That I may tell of all R194 Your praises,
That in the gates of the daughter of Zion
I may rejoice R195 in Your salvation. F86
15 The nations have sunk down in R196 the pit which they have made;
In the net R197 which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The LORD has made R198 Himself known;
He has executed R199 judgment.
In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared. Higgaion F87 Selah. F88
17 The wicked will return R200 F89 to Sheol, F90
Even all the nations who forget R201 God.
18 For the needy R202 will not always be forgotten,
Nor the hope R203 of the afflicted perish forever.
19 Arise, R204 O LORD, do not let man prevail;
Let the nations be judged R205 before You.
20 Put them in R206 fear, O LORD;
Let the nations know that they are but R207 men. Selah.
