To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
 I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
 I will be glad and exult in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
 When my enemies turn back,
they stumble and perish before your presence.
 For you have maintained my just cause;
you have sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
 You have rebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;
you have blotted out their name forever and ever.
 The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;
their cities you rooted out;
the very memory of them has perished.
 But the LORD sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
 and he judges the world with righteousness;
he judges the peoples with uprightness.
 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
 And those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
 Sing praises to the LORD, who sits enthroned in Zion!
Tell among the peoples his deeds!
 For he who avenges blood is mindful of them;
he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
 Be gracious to me, O LORD!
See my affliction from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up from the gates of death,
 that I may recount all your praises,
that in the gates of the daughter of Zion
I may rejoice in your salvation.
 The nations have sunk in the pit that they made;
in the net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.
 The LORD has made himself known; he has executed judgment;
the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion. Selah
 The wicked shall return to Sheol,
all the nations that forget God.
 For the needy shall not always be forgotten,
and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
 Arise, O LORD! Let not man prevail;
let the nations be judged before you!
 Put them in fear, O LORD!
Let the nations know that they are but men! Selah (ESV)
New City Catechism Q. 34. http://newcitycatechism.com/new-city-catechism/#34
1 Samuel 5
 When the Philistines captured the ark of God, they brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod.  Then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it into the house of Dagon and set it up beside Dagon.  And when the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and put him back in his place.  But when they rose early on the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the LORD, and the head of Dagon and both his hands were lying cut off on the threshold. Only the trunk of Dagon was left to him.  This is why the priests of Dagon and all who enter the house of Dagon do not tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day.
 The hand of the LORD was heavy against the people of Ashdod, and he terrified and afflicted them with tumors, both Ashdod and its territory.  And when the men of Ashdod saw how things were, they said, “The ark of the God of Israel must not remain with us, for his hand is hard against us and against Dagon our god.”  So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines and said, “What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel?” They answered, “Let the ark of the God of Israel be brought around to Gath.” So they brought the ark of the God of Israel there.  But after they had brought it around, the hand of the LORD was against the city, causing a very great panic, and he afflicted the men of the city, both young and old, so that tumors broke out on them.  So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. But as soon as the ark of God came to Ekron, the people of Ekron cried out, “They have brought around to us the ark of the God of Israel to kill us and our people.”  They sent therefore and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines and said, “Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it return to its own place, that it may not kill us and our people.” For there was a deathly panic throughout the whole city. The hand of God was very heavy there.  The men who did not die were struck with tumors, and the cry of the city went up to heaven. (ESV)
