Psalm 9 is YAHSHUA praising YAH’s judgment and victory over His enemies and love for His children, the meek.
For the Chief Musician. Set to “The Death of the Son.”
A Psalm by David.
(Son to Father)
9:1 I will give thanks to YHVH with My whole heart.
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in You.
I will sing praise to Your Name,
O Most High (‘Elyown).
9:3 When My enemies turn back,
they stumble and perish in Your presence.
9:4 For You have maintained My just cause.
You sit on the throne judging righteously.
9:5 You have rebuked the nations.
You have destroyed the wicked.
You have blotted out their name forever and ever.
9:6 The enemy is overtaken by endless ruin.
The very memory of the cities which
You have overthrown has perished.
(Son about Father)
9:7 But YHVH reigns forever.
He has prepared His throne for judgment.
9:8 He will judge the world in righteousness.
He will administer judgment to
the peoples in uprightness.
9:9 YHVH will also be a High Tower for the oppressed;
a High Tower in times of trouble.
(Son to Father about His people, believers)
9:10 Those who know Your Name will put their trust in You,
for You, YHVH, have not forsaken those who seek You.
(Son to His people, believers)
9:11 Sing praises to YHVH, Who dwells in Zion,
and declare among the people what He has done.
9:12 For He Who avenges blood remembers them.
He doesn’t forget the cry of the meek.
(Son to Father asking to be saved from His enemies and death)
9:13 Have mercy on Me, YHVH.
See My affliction by those who hate Me,
and lift Me up from the gates of death;
9:14 that I may show forth all Your praise.
In the gates of the daughter of Zion,
I will rejoice in Your Salvation (YAHSHUA).
(Son about the wicked and the Fathers judgment)
9:15 The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made.
In the net which they hid, their own foot is taken.
9:16 YHVH has made Himself known.
He has executed judgment.
The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands.
9:17 The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol,
even all the nations that forget ‘Elohiym.
(Son about His people)
9:18 For the meek
shall not always be forgotten,
nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever.
(Son to Father)
9:19 Arise, YHVH! Don’t let man prevail.
Let the nations be judged in Your sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, YHVH.
Let the nations know that they are only men.
