1 I will give thanks unto you, O Lord, with my whole heart;*
I will speak of all your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you;*
indeed, my songs will I sing of your Name, O Most High.
3 When my enemies are driven back,*
they shall fall and perish at your presence;
4 For you have maintained my right and my cause;*
you sit on your throne judging right.
5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the ungodly;*
you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 As for the enemy, their destruction has come; they are in perpetual ruin;*
like the cities which you have destroyed, their memory has perished with them.
7 But the Lord sits enthroned for ever;*
he has prepared his seat for judgment.
8 For he shall judge the world in righteousness,*
and minister true judgment to the peoples.
9 The Lord will be a defense for the oppressed,*
even a refuge in the time of trouble;
10 And those who know your Name will put their trust in you,*
for you, Lord, have never failed those who seek you.
11 O praise the Lord who dwells in Zion;*
tell the peoples what things he has done.
12 For when he takes vengeance for blood, he remembers them,*
and forgets not the cry of the poor.
13 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; consider the trouble I suffer from those who hate me,*
O you who lift me up from the gates of death,
14 That I may tell of all your praises within the gates of the daughter of Zion;*
I will rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made;*
in the same net which they hid secretly is their foot caught.
16 The Lord is known to execute judgment;*
the ungodly are trapped in the works of their own hands.
17 The wicked shall return to the grave,*
even all the peoples that forget God.
18 For the poor shall not always be forgotten;*
the patient hope of the meek shall not perish for ever.
19 Rise up, O Lord, and let them not have the upper hand;*
let the nations be judged in your sight.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord,*
that the nations may know themselves to be merely human.
