I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds

1 To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben.2 A Psalm of David.

  I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;

I will recount all of your gwonderful deeds.

  I will be glad and hexult in you;

I will ising praise to your name, jO Most High.

  When my enemies turn back,

they stumble and perish before3 your presence.

  For you have kmaintained my just cause;

you have lsat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.

  You have mrebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;

you have nblotted out their name forever and ever.

  The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;

their cities you rooted out;

the very memory of them has perished.

  But the Lord sits enthroned forever;

he has established his throne for justice,

  and he ojudges the world with righteousness;

he pjudges the peoples with uprightness.

  The Lord is qa stronghold for rthe oppressed,

a stronghold in stimes of trouble.

  10  And those who tknow your name put their trust in you,

for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

  11  Sing praises to the Lord, who usits enthroned in Zion!

Tell among the peoples his vdeeds!

  12  For he who wavenges blood is mindful of them;

he xdoes not forget the cry of the afflicted.

  13  yBe gracious to me, O Lord!

See my affliction from those who hate me,

O you who lift me up from zthe gates of death,

  14  that I may recount all your praises,

that in the gates of athe daughter of Zion

I may brejoice in your salvation.

  15  The nations have sunk in cthe pit that they made;

in dthe net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.

  16  The Lord has made himself eknown; he has executed judgment;

the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion.4 Selah

  17  The wicked shall freturn to Sheol,

all the nations that gforget God.

  18  For the needy shall not always be forgotten,

and hthe hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

  19  iArise, O Lord! Let not jman prevail;

let the nations be judged before you!

  20  Put them in fear, O Lord!

Let the nations know that they are but jmen! Selah
