PSALM 9 BY ALEXADER MACLAREPSALM IX.i (K) I will thank Jehovah with my whole heart)I will recount all Thy wonders.2 I will be glad and exult in Thee ;I will sing Thy name, Most High,3 (D) Because mine enemies turn back ;They stumble and perish at Thy presence.4 For Thou hast upheld my right and my suit ;Thou didst seat Thyself on Thy throne, judging righteously.5 (3) Thou hast rebuked the nations, Thou hast destroyed thewicked ;Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and aye.6 The enemy — they are ended, [they are] desolations for ever,And [their] cities hast Thou rooted out ; perished is their memory,7 (fl) They [are perished], but Jehovah shall sit throned for ever ;He hath prepared His throne for judgment.8 And He — He shall judge the world in righteousness ;He shall deal judgment to the peoples in equity.9 (1) And Jehovah shall be a lofty stronghold for the crushed,A lofty stronghold in times of extremity.10 And they who know Thy name will put trust in Thee,For Thou hast not forsaken them that seek Thee, Jehovah.1 1 (t) Sing with the harp to Jehovah, sitting throned in Zion ;Declare among the peoples His doings.
12 For He that makes inquisition for blood has remembered them ;He has not forgotten the cry of the humble.13 (n) Have mercy on me, Jehovah ;Look on my affliction from my haters,Thou who liftest me up from the gates of death14 To the end that I may recount all Thy praises.In the gates of the daughter of Zion,will rejoice in Thy salvation.ftfS THE PSALMS.15 (D) The nations are sunk in the pit they made ;In the net which they spread their foot is caught.1 6 Jehovah makes Himself known ; judgment hath He done,Snaring the wicked by the work of his own hands. Higgaion jSelah.17 (i) The wicked shall return to Sheol,All the nations who forget God.1 8 For not for ever shall the needy be forgotten,or the expectation of the afflicted perish for aye,19 (p) Arise, Jehovah : let not man grow strong ;Let the nations be judged before Thy presence.20 Appoint, Jehovah, terrors for them ;Let the nations come to know that they are men.
PSALMS vii. and ix. are connected by the recur-rence of the two thoughts of God as the Judgeof nations and the wicked falling into the pit whichhe digged. Probably the original arrangement of thePsalter put these two next each other, and Psalm viii.was inserted later.Psalm ix. is imperfectly acrostic. It falls into strainsof two verses each, which are marked by sequence of thought as well as by the acrostic arrangement. Thefirst begins with Aleph, the second with Beth, andso on, the second verse of each pair not being countedin the scheme. The fourth letter is missing, andver. 7, which should begin with it, begins with thesixth. But a textual correction, which is desirableon other grounds, makes the fifth letter (He) the initialof ver. 7, and then the regular sequence is kept uptill ver. 19, which should begin with the soft K, buttakes instead the guttural Q. What has become of the rest of the alphabet ? Part of it is found in Psalmx., where the first verse begins with the L, which shouldfollow the regular K for ver. 19. But there is no moretrace of acrostic structure in x. till ver. 12, which resumesix.] THE PSALMS. 79it with the Q which has already appeared out of place inix. 19 ; and it goes on to the end of the alphabet, withonly the irregularity that the R strain (x. 14) has butone verse. Verses with the missing letters would justabout occupy the space of the non-acrostic verses inPsalm x., and the suggestion is obvious that the latterare part of some other psalm which has been substitutedfor the original ; but there are links of connection be-tween the non-acrostic and acrostic portions of Psalm x.,which make that hypothesis difficult. The resem-blances between the two psalms as they stand are
