13 I said this prayer: “Lord, be kind to me.
See how my enemies are hurting me.
Save me from the ‘gates of death.’
14 Then, at the gates of Jerusalem,[a] I can sing praises to you.
I will be so happy because you saved me.”
15 Those other nations have fallen into the pit they dug to catch others.
They have been caught in their own trap.
- Psalm 9:14 Jerusalem Literally, “daughter Zion.” See “Zion” in the Word List.
New International Version
13 Lord, see how my enemies(A) persecute me!
Have mercy(B) and lift me up from the gates of death,(C)
14 that I may declare your praises(D)
in the gates of Daughter Zion,(E)
and there rejoice in your salvation.(F)
