Psalm 9:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 9[a]

Thanksgiving for Victory and Prayer for Justice

For the leader; according to Muth Labben.[b] A psalm of David.


I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
    I will declare all your wondrous deeds.


  1. Psalms 9–10 Ps 9 and Ps 10 in the Hebrew text have been transmitted as separate poems but they actually form a single acrostic poem and are so transmitted in the Greek and Latin tradition. Each verse of the two Psalms begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet (though several letters have no corresponding stanza). The Psalm states loosely connected themes: the rescue of the helpless poor from their enemies, God’s worldwide judgment and rule over the nations, the psalmist’s own concern for rescue (Ps 9:14–15).
  2. 9:1 Muth Labben: probably the melodic accompaniment of the Psalm, now lost.
