Psalm 9:1 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
9 I will give thanks to Jehovah with my whole heart;
I will declare all your wonderful works.
I will give thanks to Jehovah – That is, because of the merciful placement referred to in the psalm Psa. 9:3-5, and given the attributes of God’s character which had been displayed on that occasion, Psa. 9:7-12.
With my whole heart – Not with divided affection or with partial gratitude. He meant that all his powers should be employed in this service, that he would give utterance to his feelings of gratitude and adoration in the loftiest and purest manner possible.
I will declare – I will recount or narrate – to make known in this song of praise.
All thy marvelous works – All his works or doings fitted to excite admiration or wonder. The reference here is particularly to what God had done, which had given occasion to this psalm. However, still, the psalmist designs undoubtedly to connect with this purpose to give a general expression of praise given all that God had done that was fitted to excite such feelings.
