Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Alleluia. Acknowledge ye to the Lord, for he is good; for his mercy is [into] without end. (Alleluia. Give ye thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his love is forever.) 1 Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
2 Who shall speak (of) the powers of the Lord; shall make known all his praisings? (Who shall speak of the Lord's powers? who shall make known all his praises?/who shall make known all the praises that he is due?) 2 Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise?
3 Blessed be they that keep doom; and do rightfulness in all time. (Happy be they who obey his commands, or his judgements; and who always do what is right.) 3 Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.
4 Lord, have thou mind on us, in the good pleasance of thy people; visit thou us in thine health. (Lord, remember me when thou helpest thy people; include me in their salvation, or in their deliverance.) 4 Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them,
5 To see in the goodness of thy chosen men, to be glad in the gladness of thy folk; that thou be praised with thine heritage. (So that I may see the goodness of thy chosen people, and that I be glad, or rejoice, in the gladness of thy nation; and so that I may have glory with thy inheritance.) 5 that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise.
6 We have sinned with our fathers; we have done unjustly, we have done wickedness. (We have all sinned like our forefathers; we have all done unjustly, we have all done wickedness.) 6 We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly.
7 Our fathers in Egypt understood not thy marvels; they were not mindful of the multitude of thy mercy. And they going into the sea, into the Red Sea, stirred (him) to wrath; (Our forefathers in Egypt did not understand thy marvellous deeds; they did not remember thy many loving deeds. And they stirred thee to anger at the sea, yea, at the Red Sea/And they rebelled against thee at the sea, yea, at the Sea of Reeds;) 7 When our fathers were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea.
8 and he saved them for his name, that he should make known his power. (but still he saved them for the sake of his name, so that he could make known his power.) 8 Yet he saved them for his name's sake, to make his mighty power known.
9 And he parted the Red Sea, and it was dried; and he led forth them in the depths of waters, as in desert. (And he parted the Red Sea, or the Sea of Reeds, and it dried up; and he led them forth through the depths of the waters, as though through the wilderness.) 9 He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert.
10 And he saved them from the hand of haters; and he again-bought them from the hand of the enemy (and he redeemed them from the power of the enemy). 10 He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them.
11 And the waters covered men troubling them; one of them abode not. (And then the waters covered the men who troubled them; yea, not one of them was left alive.) 11 The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived.
12 And they believed to his words; and they praised the praising of him. (And they believed in his promises; and they sang his praises.) 12 Then they believed his promises and sang his praise.
13 They had soon done, (that) they forgat his works; and they abided not his counsel. (But soon they had forgotten all his works; and they did not wait for his counsel.) 13 But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel.
14 And they coveted covetousness in desert (And they were utterly insatiable in the wilderness); and tempted God in a place without water. 14 In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test.
15 And he gave to them the asking of them; and he sent fullness into the souls of them. (And so he gave them what they asked for; but he also sent leanness, that is, sickness, into their bodies.) 15 So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them.
16 And they wrathed (against) Moses in the castles; (and against) Aaron, the holy (man) of the Lord. (And they envied Moses in their tents; and also Aaron, the holy man of the Lord.) 16 In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the LORD.
17 The earth was opened, and swallowed [down] Dathan; and covered on the congregation of Abiram. (And the earth opened up, and swallowed Dathan; and it covered up the company, or the family, of Abiram.) 17 The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram.
18 And fire burnt on high in the synagogue of them; flame burnt [the] sinners. (And fire burned on high throughout their company, or their congregation; yea, the flame burned up the sinners.) 18 Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked.
19 And they made a calf in Horeb; and worshipped a molten image. (And then they made a golden calf at Sinai; and so they worshipped a cast image.) 19 At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal.
20 And they changed their glory; into the likeness of a calf eating hay. (And they exchanged the glory of God; for the metal likeness of a calf that eateth grass.) 20 They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass.
21 They forgat God, that saved them, that did great works in Egypt, (They forgot their God, who saved them, and who did great works in Egypt,) 21 They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,
22 marvels in the land of Ham; fearedful things in the Red Sea. (yea, marvellous deeds in the land of Ham; and fearful things in the Red Sea/in the Sea of Reeds.) 22 miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.
23 And God said, that he would lose them; (and he would have,) if Moses, his chosen man, had not stood in the breaking of his sight. That he should turn away his ire; lest he lost them. (And God said, that he would destroy them; and he would have, if Moses, his chosen man, had not stood in the gap, or the breach, before him; so that he would turn away his anger, lest it destroy the people.) 23 So he said he would destroy them-- had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them.
24 And they had the desirable land for nought, (for) they believed not to his word, (And they considered the desirable land as worth nothing, for they did not believe his promise,) 24 Then they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his promise.
25 and they grutched in their tabernacles (and they grumbled in their tents); (and) they heard not the voice of the Lord. 25 They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the LORD.
26 And he raised his hand on them; to cast down them in desert. (And he raised up his hand against them; to throw them down in the wilderness.) 26 So he swore to them with uplifted hand that he would make them fall in the desert,
27 And to cast away their seed in nations; and to lose them in countries. (And to scatter their descendants among the nations; and so to let them die in foreign, or strange, lands.) 27 make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands.
28 And they made sacrifice to Baalpeor; and they ate the sacrifices of dead beasts. (And then they sacrificed to Baalpeor; and they ate the sacrifices offered to dead, or lifeless, gods.) 28 They yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods;
29 And they wrathed God in their findings; and falling, either death, was multiplied in them. (And they angered God with their deeds; and many died from the plague.) 29 they provoked the LORD to anger by their wicked deeds, and a plague broke out among them.
30 And Phinehas stood, and pleased God; and the vengeance ceased. (But then Phinehas stood up, and pleased God; and the plague ceased.) 30 But Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was checked.
31 And it was areckoned to him to rightfulness; in generation and into generation, till into without end. (And it was counted unto him as righteousness; throughout all generations, forever.) 31 This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come.
32 And they wrathed God at the waters of against-saying; and Moses was travailed for them, that is, troubled in soul, (And then they angered God again, this time at the waters of Meribah; and Moses was travailed for them, that is, his soul was troubled over them/and Moses was in great trouble because of them,) 32 By the waters of Meribah they angered the LORD, and trouble came to Moses because of them;
33 for they made bitter his spirit, and he parted in his lips. (for they made his spirit so bitter, that he spoke rashly with his lips.) 33 for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses' lips.
34 They lost not [the] heathen men; which the Lord said to them (to do). (And they did not destroy the heathen; which the Lord had commanded them to do.) 34 They did not destroy the peoples as the LORD had commanded them,
35 And they were meddled among heathen men, and learned the works of them; (Indeed, they were mixed in among the heathen, and learned all their ways;) 35 but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs.
36 and served the graven images of them; and it was made to them into cause of stumbling. (and served their carved idols; and that became their falling, or their trap.) 36 They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them.
37 And they offered their sons, and their daughters, to fiends. (And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters, to demons and to devils.) 37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons.
38 And they shedded out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and of their daughters; which they sacrificed to the graven images of Canaan. And the earth was slain in bloods, (And so they shed innocent blood, the blood of their own sons and daughters; whom they sacrificed to the carved idols of Canaan. And the earth was polluted with their children's blood,) 38 They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.
39 and was defouled in the works of them; and they did fornication in their findings. (and they were defiled by their works; and they wantonly abandoned God with their deeds.) 39 They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves.
40 And the Lord was wroth by strong vengeance against his people; and he had abomination of his heritage. (And the Lord grew more and more angry in his fury against his people; and he had abomination for his own inheritance.) 40 Therefore the LORD was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance.
41 And he betook them into the hands of heathen men; and they that hated them, were lords of them. (And he delivered them into the hands of the heathen; and so they who hated them, were their lords.) 41 He handed them over to the nations, and their foes ruled over them.
42 And their enemies did tribulation to them, and they were meeked under the hands of enemies; (And their enemies troubled them/oppressed them, and they were humbled at the hands of their enemies;) 42 Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power.
43 oft he delivered them. But they wrathed him in their counsel; and they were made low in their wickednesses. (and often he rescued them. But then they stirred him to anger again with their deeds/But still they chose to rebel against him; and so they were brought down low for their wickednesses.) 43 Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin.
44 And he saw, when they were set in tribulation; and he heard the prayer of them (and he heard their prayers). 44 But he took note of their distress when he heard their cry;
45 And he was mindful of his testament; and it repented him by the multitude of his mercy. (And he remembered his covenant with them; and he relented because of his great love.) 45 for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented.
46 And he gave them into mercies; in the sight of all men, that had taken them. (And he made the people, who had taken them captive, to have compassion for them.) 46 He caused them to be pitied by all who held them captive.
47 Our Lord God, make thou us safe; and gather together us from nations. That we acknowledge to thine holy name; and have glory in thy praising. (Lord our God, save thou us; and gather us back from among the nations. So that we may give thanks to thy holy name; and receive glory in thy praising.) 47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.
48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from the world and till into the world (Blessed be the Lord God of Israel forever and ever); and all the people shall say, Be it done, be it done. 48 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD.
