Psalms 9:3 When my enemies retreat, they trip and are destroyed in your presence.

Having begun praising God for his creations, is the psalmist now changing topics and talking about the weakness of his enemies? No, he is facing formidable enemies and at times needs to retreat to God’s protective presence. He trusts that when God chooses to go on the attack, his enemies will have no one to protect them.

Thus, this is a continuation of worship. The psalmist praises God for his power to defeat his enemies.
