The Fate of Nations Forgetful of God

Psalm 9 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

God’s Power and Justice

To the choirmaster: according to Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.

15 The nations have sunk in the pit which they made; in the net which they hid has their own foot been caught.16 The Lord has made himself known, he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion. Selah

17 The wicked shall depart to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.

18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.

19 Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before thee! 20 Put them in fear, O Lord! Let the nations know that they are but men! Selah
