1 Unto the end. For the secrets of the Son. A Psalm of David.
2 I will confess to you, Lord, with my whole heart. I will recount all your wonders.
3 I will rejoice and exult in you. I will sing a psalm to your name, O Most High.
4 For my enemy will be turned back. They will be weakened and perish before your face.
5 For you have accomplished my judgment and my cause. You have sat upon the throne that judges justice.
6 You have rebuked the Gentiles, and the impious one has perished. You have deleted their name in eternity and for all generations.
7 The spears of the enemy have failed in the end, and their cities, you have destroyed. Their memory has perished with a loud noise.
8 But the Lord remains in eternity. He has prepared his throne in judgment.
9 And he will judge the whole world in equity. He will judge the people in justice.
10 And the Lord has become a refuge for the poor, a helper in opportunity, in tribulation.
11 And may they hope in you, who know your name. For you have not abandoned those seeking you, Lord.
12 Sing a psalm to the Lord, who dwells in Zion. Announce his study among the Gentiles.
13 Because of those who yearned for their blood, he has remembered them. He has not forgotten the cry of the poor.
14 Have mercy on me, Lord. See my humiliation from my enemies.
1 Woe to you who devise useless things and who work evil in your beds. In the morning light, they undertake it, because their hand is against God.
2 And they have desired fields and have taken them by violence, and they have stolen houses. And they have made false accusations against a man and his house, a man and his inheritance.
3 For this reason, thus says the Lord: Behold, I devise an evil against this family, from which you will not steal away your necks. And you will not walk in arrogance, because this is a most wicked time.
4 In that day, a parable will be taken up about you, and a song will be sung with sweetness, saying: "We have been devastated by depopulation." The fate of my people has been altered. How can he withdraw from me, when he might be turned back, he who might tear apart our country?
5 Because of this, there will be for you no casting of the cord of fate in the assembly of the Lord.
