Book of Psalms Chapter 9

(Hebrew Verse 1: To the player of the Mot Leven (a musical instrument) - a hymn to David)*

PSALMS 9:1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

PSALMS 9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

PSALMS 9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.

PSALMS 9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.

PSALMS 9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

PSALMS 9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.

PSALMS 9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

PSALMS 9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

PSALMS 9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

PSALMS 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

PSALMS 9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

PSALMS 9:12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

PSALMS 9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

PSALMS 9:14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

PSALMS 9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

PSALMS 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion.** Selah.

PSALMS 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

PSALMS 9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

PSALMS 9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

PSALMS 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.


* The numbering of the verses in the Hebrew book of Psalms differs in many chapters.. The Hebrew version often contains one extra verse, because it starts with the dedication, which is often to the director of the temple musicians or a player of a specific instrument.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
