New International Version
13 Lord, see how my enemies(M) persecute me!
Have mercy(N) and lift me up from the gates of death,(O)
14 that I may declare your praises(P)
in the gates of Daughter Zion,(Q)
and there rejoice in your salvation.(R)
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;(S)
their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.(T)
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice;
the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[a](U)
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,(V)
all the nations that forget God.(W)
18 But God will never forget the needy;
the hope(X) of the afflicted(Y) 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.
