New International Version
13 Lord, see how my enemies(A) persecute me!
Have mercy(B) and lift me up from the gates of death,(C)
14 that I may declare your praises(D)
in the gates of Daughter Zion,(E)
and there rejoice in your salvation.(F)
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;(G)
their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.(H)
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice;
the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[a](I)
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,(J)
all the nations that forget God.(K)
18 But God will never forget the needy;
the hope(L) of the afflicted(M) will never perish.
- Psalm 9:16 The Hebrew has Higgaion and Selah (words of uncertain meaning) here; Selah occurs also at the end of verse 20.
