New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Hannah prayed: "My heart rejoices in the LORD! Oh, how the LORD has blessed me! Now I have an answer for my enemies, as I delight in your deliverance. 1 Then Hannah prayed and said: "My heart rejoices in the LORD; in the LORD my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.
2 No one is holy like the LORD! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God." 2 "There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
3 "Stop acting so proud and haughty! Don't speak with such arrogance! The LORD is a God who knows your deeds; and he will judge you for what you have done. 3 "Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the LORD is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.
4 Those who were mighty are mighty no more; and those who were weak are now strong. 4 "The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.
5 Those who were well fed are now starving; and those who were starving are now full. The barren woman now has seven children; but the woman with many children will have no more. 5 Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry hunger no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.
6 The LORD brings both death and life; he brings some down to the grave but raises others up. 6 "The LORD brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up.
7 The LORD makes one poor and another rich; he brings one down and lifts another up. 7 The LORD sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts.
8 He lifts the poor from the dust -- yes, from a pile of ashes! He treats them like princes, placing them in seats of honor. For all the earth is the LORD's, and he has set the world in order. 8 He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. "For the foundations of the earth are the LORD's; upon them he has set the world.
9 He will protect his godly ones, but the wicked will perish in darkness. No one will succeed by strength alone. 9 He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails;
10 Those who fight against the LORD will be broken. He thunders against them from heaven; the LORD judges throughout the earth. He gives mighty strength to his king; he increases the might of his anointed one." 10 those who oppose the LORD will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth. "He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed."
