Book 1 – Psalm 9 of 41: Jesus and the nations

So continue to sing praise to His name, O Most High! (v.3) He is the LORD who sits enthroned forever, establishing his throne for justice – contrasted against the enemy who will also be subject to the everlasting: everlasting ruin. The enemy shall be blotted out, the very memory of them perished (v.5-6). Do we, the oppressed, those who suffer in times of trouble, look to Him as our stronghold (v.9)? He has shared his Name to the world – He has shared His only Son – yet, do we put our trust in Christ (v.10), in whom we would not be forsaken?

He is the LORD who avenges; He is the LORD who is gracious; He is the LORD who saves; He is the LORD who makes himself known; He is the LORD who executes judgment; He is the LORD who causes nations to fear. Do we find refuge in Him? Or do we identify with ours acts of death, leading us to fellowship with the wicked who are snared in the work of their own hands; who shall return to Sheol; who shall sink in the pit that they have made? Humble them Father – let us revel in giving life than causing death; let us choose to love the LORD who loves us first, than the enemy who seeks company in everlasting ruin.
