Psalms 9

Overview

Psalms 9:1, David praises God for executing judgment; Psalms 9:11, He incites others to praise him; Psalms 9:13, He prays that he may have cause to praise him.

Probably, “the death of the champion:” so the Chaldee has, “A Psalm of David, to be sung concerning the death of the man who went out between ( mibbeyney ) the camps;” evidently considering labben , of the same import as bainayim , “a middle-man or champion,” as Goliath is termed, 1 Samuel 17:4, concerning whose defeat this psalm is generally supposed to have been composed.
