A tough one today! Psalm 9 is a strong challenge, and full of strong lines.

When there's so much in one chapter, I have to make do with trying to convey the overall sense.

But today that means I've missed the likes of:

"The LORD sits enthroned forever."
"He is a refuge for the oppressed."
"Arise, O LORD! Let the nations be judged."


V 1 I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
The opening of this Psalm reminds us to give thanks to God wholeheartedly not half
heartedly. Give thanks for His majesty, power, love and righteous judgement.
