Psalm 9 (WEBP)

[1] I will give thanks to Yahweh with my whole heart. I will tell of all your marvelous works.
[2] I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
[3] When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish in your presence.
[4] For you have maintained my just cause. You sit on the throne judging righteously.
[5] You have rebuked the nations. You have destroyed the wicked. You have blotted out their name forever and ever.
[6] The enemy is overtaken by endless ruin. The very memory of the cities which you have overthrown has perished.
[7] But Yahweh reigns forever. He has prepared his throne for judgment.
[8] He will judge the world in righteousness. He will administer judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
[9] Yahweh will also be a high tower for the oppressed; a high tower in times of trouble.
[10] Those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek you.
[11] Sing praises to Yahweh, who dwells in Zion, and declare among the people what he has done.
[12] For he who avenges blood remembers them. He doesn’t forget the cry of the afflicted.
[13] Have mercy on me, Yahweh. See my affliction by those who hate me, and lift me up from the gates of death,
[14] that I may show all of your praise. I will rejoice in your salvation in the gates of the daughter of Zion.
[15] The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made. In the net which they hid, their own foot is taken.
[16] Yahweh has made himself known. He has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands. Meditation. Selah.
[17] The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol,° even all the nations that forget God.
[18] For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever.
[19] Arise, Yahweh! Don’t let man prevail. Let the nations be judged in your sight.
[20] Put them in fear, Yahweh. Let the nations know that they are only men. Selah.

Psalm 9:17 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Psalm 9 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Muthlabben H4192 H1121, A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» I will praise H3034 (8686) [thee], O LORD H3068, with my whole heart H3820; I will shew forth H5608 (8762) all thy marvellous works H6381 (8737).
[2] I will be glad H8055 (8799) and rejoice H5970 (8799) in thee: I will sing praise H2167 (8762) to thy name H8034, O thou most High H5945.
[3] When mine enemies H341 (8802) are turned H7725 (8800) back H268, they shall fall H3782 (8735) and perish H6 (8799) at thy presence H6440.
[4] For thou hast maintained H6213 (8804) my right H4941 and my cause H1779; thou satest H3427 (8804) in the throne H3678 judging H8199 (8802) right H6664.
[5] Thou hast rebuked H1605 (8804) the heathen H1471, thou hast destroyed H6 (8765) the wicked H7563, thou hast put out H4229 (8804) their name H8034 for ever H5769 and ever H5703.
[6] O thou enemy H341 (8802), destructions H2723 are come to a perpetual H5331 end H8552 (8804): and thou hast destroyed H5428 (8804) cities H6145 (8676) H5892; their memorial H2143 is perished H6 (8804) with them H1992.
[7] But the LORD H3068 shall endure H3427 (8799) for ever H5769: he hath prepared H3559 (8790) his throne H3678 for judgment H4941.
[8] And he shall judge H8199 (8799) the world H8398 in righteousness H6664, he shall minister judgment H1777 (8799) to the people H3816 in uprightness H4339.
[9] The LORD H3068 also will be a refuge H4869 for the oppressed H1790, a refuge H4869 in times H6256 of trouble H6869.
[10] And they that know H3045 (8802) thy name H8034 will put their trust H982 (8799) in thee: for thou, LORD H3068, hast not forsaken H5800 (8804) them that seek H1875 (8802) thee.
[11] Sing praises H2167 (8761) to the LORD H3068, which dwelleth H3427 (8802) in Zion H6726: declare H5046 (8685) among the people H5971 his doings H5949.
[12] When he maketh inquisition H1875 (8802) for blood H1818, he remembereth H2142 (8804) them: he forgetteth H7911 (8804) not the cry H6818 of the humble H6035 (8675) H6041.
[13] Have mercy H2603 (8798) upon me, O LORD H3068; consider H7200 (8798) my trouble H6040 [which I suffer] of them that hate H8130 (8802) me, thou that liftest me up H7311 (8789) from the gates H8179 of death H4194:
[14] That I may shew forth H5608 (8762) all thy praise H8416 in the gates H8179 of the daughter H1323 of Zion H6726: I will rejoice H1523 (8799) in thy salvation H3444.
[15] The heathen H1471 are sunk down H2883 (8804) in the pit H7845 [that] they made H6213 (8804): in the net H7568 which H2098 they hid H2934 (8804) is their own foot H7272 taken H3920 (8738).
[16] The LORD H3068 is known H3045 (8738) [by] the judgment H4941 [which] he executeth H6213 (8804): the wicked H7563 is snared H5367 (8804) in the work H6467 of his own hands H3709. Higgaion H1902. Selah H5542.
[17] The wicked H7563 shall be turned H7725 (8799) into hell H7585, [and] all the nations H1471 that forget H7913 God H430.
[18] For the needy H34 shall not alway H5331 be forgotten H7911 (8735): the expectation H8615 of the poor H6041 (8675) H6035 shall [not] perish H6 (8799) for ever H5703.
[19] Arise H6965 (8798), O LORD H3068; let not man H582 prevail H5810 (8799): let the heathen H1471 be judged H8199 (8735) in thy sight H6440.
[20] Put H7896 (8798) them in fear H4172 (8675) H4172, O LORD H3068: [that] the nations H1471 may know H3045 (8799) themselves [to be but] men H582. Selah H5542.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 9 (YLT)

[1] I confess, O Jehovah, with all my heart, I recount all Thy wonders,
[2] I rejoice and exult in Thee, I praise Thy Name, O Most High.
[3] In mine enemies turning backward, they stumble and perish from Thy face.
[4] For Thou hast done my judgment and my right. Thou hast sat on a throne, A judge of righteousness.
[5] Thou hast rebuked nations, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Their name Thou hast blotted out to the age and for ever.
[6] O thou Enemy, Finished have been destructions for ever, As to cities thou hast plucked up, Perished hath their memorial with them.
[7] And Jehovah to the age abideth, He is preparing for judgment His throne.
[8] And He judgeth the world in righteousness, He judgeth the peoples in uprightness.
[9] And Jehovah is a tower for the bruised, A tower for times of adversity.
[10] They trust in Thee who do know Thy name, For Thou hast not forsaken Those seeking Thee, O Jehovah.
[11] Sing ye praise to Jehovah, inhabiting Zion, Declare ye among the peoples His acts,
[12] For He who is seeking for blood Them hath remembered, He hath not forgotten the cry of the afflicted.
[13] Favour me, O Jehovah, See mine affliction by those hating me, Thou who liftest me up from the gates of death,
[14] So that I recount all Thy praise, In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I rejoice on Thy salvation.
[15] Sunk have nations in a pit they made, In a net that they hid hath their foot been captured.
[16] Jehovah hath been known, Judgment He hath done, By a work of his hands Hath the wicked been snared. Meditation. Selah.
[17] The wicked do turn back to Sheol, All nations forgetting God.
[18] For not for ever is the needy forgotten, The hope of the humble lost to the age.
[19] Rise, O Jehovah, let not man be strong, Let nations be judged before Thy face.
[20] Appoint, O Jehovah, a director to them, Let nations know they are men! Selah.
