Psalm 9-16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
9 I will praise Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Thy marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in Thee; I will sing praise to Thy name, O Thou Most High.
3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at Thy presence.
4 For Thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou sittest on the throne judging right.
5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, Thou hast destroyed the wicked; Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and Thou hast destroyed their cities; their memorial is perished with them.
7 But the Lord shall endure for ever; He hath prepared His throne for judgment.
8 And He shall judge the world with righteousness; He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; for Thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.
11 Sing praises to the Lord who dwelleth in Zion! Declare among the people His doings.
12 When He maketh inquisition for blood, He remembereth them; He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy upon me, O Lord! Consider my trouble which I suffer from them that hate me, Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death,
14 that I may show forth all Thy praise at the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Thy salvation.
15 The heathen have sunk down into the pit that they made; in the net which they hid, their own foot is taken.
16 The Lord is known by the judgment which He executeth; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Arise, O Lord, let not man prevail; let the heathen be judged in Thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord; that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah
10 Why standest Thou afar off, O Lord? Why hidest Thou Thyself in times of trouble?
2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor; let them be caught in the devices that they have contrived.
3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous whom the Lord abhorreth.
4 The wicked, in the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God; God is not in all his thoughts.
5 His ways are always grievous; Thy judgments are far above, out of his sight; as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
6 He hath said in his heart, “I shall not be moved, for I shall never be in adversity.”
7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud; under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages; in secret places doth he murder the innocent; his eyes are privily set against the poor.
9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den; he lieth in wait to catch the poor; he doth catch the poor when he draweth him into his net.
10 He croucheth and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
11 He hath said in his heart, “God hath forgotten; He hideth His face, He will never see it.”
12 Arise, O Lord! O God, lift up Thine hand! Forget not the humble.
13 Why doth the wicked contemn God? He hath said in his heart, “Thou wilt not keep account.”
14 But Thou hast seen it, for Thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with Thy hand. The poor committeth himself unto Thee; Thou art the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break Thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man; seek out his wickedness until Thou find none.
16 The Lord is King for ever and ever; the heathen have perished out of His land.
17 Lord, Thou hast heard the desire of the humble; Thou wilt prepare their heart, Thou wilt cause Thine ear to hear,
18 to judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
11 In the Lord I put my trust; how say ye to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain,
2 for lo, the wicked bend their bow and make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart;
3 if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
4 The Lord is in His holy temple! The Lord’S throne is in heaven! His eyes behold; His eyelids test the children of men!
5 The Lord trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence, His soul hateth.
6 Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright.
12 Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3 The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things,
4 who have said, “With our tongue, we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?”
5 “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise,” saith the Lord; “I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord; Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
13 How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord? For ever? How long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4 lest mine enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in Thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.
6 I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.
14 The fool hath said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt; they have done abominable works; there is none that doeth good.
2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand and seek God.
3 They have all turned aside; they are all together become filthy. There is none that doeth good; no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and call not upon the Lord?
5 There were they in great fear, for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When the Lord bringeth back His people from captivity, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
15 Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart;
3 he that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, nor spreadeth a reproach against his neighbor;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is contemned, but he honoreth them that fear the Lord; he that taketh an oath to his own hurt, and changeth not;
5 he that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh a bribe against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
16 Preserve me, O God, for in Thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, “Thou art my Lord; my goodness extendeth not to Thee,
3 but to the saints that are on the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.”
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied, that hasten after another god; their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names upon my lips.
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup; Thou maintainest my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord who hath given me counsel; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8 I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10 For Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt show me the path of life; in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
