Daily Bible Verse - 10/14/2007 - Psalm 9:1

NIV I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders.
KJV I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
NASB I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonders.
Psalm 9:1
The sweet singer of Israel (David) is ecstatic over all God's marvelous works. Here he is not thinking so much of His deeds in creation or redemption but of His spectacular feats in crushing the nation's foes. David gives all the glory to God-none to himself and none to man's weapons or skill. With every fiber of his being he honors and magnifies the name of the Most High. The example of his love and devotion to the Lord makes many of us realize how cold and unresponsive we often are.

However nations might justify and judge their actions, the ultimate Judge of their conduct is God. His righteousness, which flows from His very character, is the final standard against which right and wrong is measured (Ps. 9:4). This righteous Judge rebuked the nations of David's day for failing to do what David had done in Psalm 8-acknowledge God (8:1, 9).
