(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. To the conductor, to brighten the youth, a song of David.
  2. I will thank the Lord with all my heart; I will tell all Your wonders.
  3. I will rejoice and exult with You; I will sing praises to Your most high name
  4. When my enemies draw backward, they stumble and are destroyed from before You.
  5. For You have performed my judgment and my cause; You sat on the throne, O Judge of righteousness.
  6. You rebuked nations, You destroyed a wicked man; You erased their name forever and ever.
  7. The enemy has been destroyed; swords exist forever, and You have uprooted the cities-their remembrance is lost.
  8. But the Lord shall sit forever; He has established His throne for judgment.
  9. But He judges the world with righteousness, kingdoms with equity.
  10. And the Lord shall be a fortress for the crushed, a fortress for times of distress.
  11. And those who know Your name shall trust in You, for You have not forsaken those who seek You, O Lord.
  12. Sing praises to the Lord, Who dwells in Zion; relate His deeds among the peoples.
  13. For He Who avenges blood remembers them; He has not forgotten the cry of the humble.
  14. Be gracious to me, O Lord, see my affliction from my enemies, You Who raise me up from the gates of death,
  15. in order that I tell all Your praises; in the gates of the daughter of Zion I will rejoice in Your salvation.
  16. Nations have sunk in the pit they have made; in this net that they have concealed, their foot has become trapped.
  17. The Lord is known for the judgment that He performed; with the act of His hand, the wicked man stumbles. Let us meditate over this forever.
  18. May the wicked return to the grave, all nations who forget God.
  19. For the needy shall not be forgotten forever, neither shall the hope of the poor be lost to eternity.
  20. Arise, O Lord; let man have no power. May the nations be judged for Your anger.
  21. O Lord, place mastery over them; let the nations know that they forever are mortal man.
