Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 9:11-20. David encourages us to sing praises to the LORD who dwells in Zion, and declare His wonderful works among the people. David declares that the LORD doesn’t forget the cry of the humble.
He cries out to the LORD to have mercy on him and consider the trouble that he faces because of those who hate him.
David promises the LORD that if He spares his life and saves him from the enemy he will praise the LORD in the gates of Zion and rejoice in the salvation of the LORD.
David declares that the LORD is known by the judgment that He places on the wicked. He says that the wicked will be caught in their snares.
David says that the poor and needy will not be forgotten.
David cries out for the LORD to arise and not let the wicked man prevail, but to judge the nations so that the people may know that they are only men. David’s cry is for the nations to recognize the LORD God of Zion.
Daily Bible Reading:
11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
Things to think about:
- Why is David singing to the LORD?
- What does David want the LORD to do?
- What does David say about the wicked?
- What does David say about the poor and needy?
