When Man Forgets God Always Remembers


Scripture Reading in KJV and ASV

Psalm 9 (King James Version)

1 I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous 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 satest in the throne judging right.

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

6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed 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 in 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, which 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 of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

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

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

Psalm 9 (American Standard Version)

A psalm of thanksgiving for God’s justice.
For the Chief Musician; set to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.

1 I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart;
I will show forth all thy marvellous works.

2 I will be glad and exult in thee;
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou [a]Most High.

3 When mine enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish at thy presence.

4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.

5 Thou hast rebuked the [b]nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked;
Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.

6 [c]The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever;
[d]And the cities which thou hast [e]overthrown,
The very remembrance of them is perished.

7 But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment;

8 And he will judge the world in righteousness,
He will minister judgment to the [f]peoples in uprightness.

9 Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed,
A high tower in times of trouble;

10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee;
For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion:
Declare among the [g]people his doings.

12 [h]For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them;
He forgetteth not the cry of the [i]poor.

13 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah;
Behold my affliction which I suffer of them that hate me,
Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;

14 That I may show forth all thy praise.
In the gates of the daughter of Zion
I will rejoice in thy [j]salvation.

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

16 Jehovah hath made himself known, he hath executed judgment:
[k]The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

17 The wicked shall be turned back unto Sheol,
Even all the nations that forget God.

18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten,
Nor the expectation of the [l]poor perish for ever.

19 Arise, O Jehovah; let not man prevail:
Let the nations be judged in thy sight.

20 Put them in fear, O Jehovah:
Let the nations know themselves to be but men. Selah
