"The LORD is known by the judgment He executes..."

Day 70 – Psalm 9

“The LORD is known by the judgment He executes…” Psalm 9:16a


David was most confident of how the Lord would respond to his cry for help!

“The nations have sunk in the pit which they made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.
The LORD is known by the judgment He executes;
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. (Meditation)
The wicked shall be turned into hell
And all the nations that forget God.”
Psalm 9:15-17
