Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David. Blessed [is] Jehovah my rock, who is teaching My hands for war, my fingers for battle. 1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.
2 My kind one, and my bulwark, My tower, and my deliverer, My shield, and in whom I have trusted, Who is subduing my people under me! 2 He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
3 Jehovah, what [is] man that Thou knowest him? Son of man, that Thou esteemest him? 3 O LORD, what is man that you care for him, the son of man that you think of him?
4 Man to vanity hath been like, His days [are] as a shadow passing by. 4 Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow.
5 Jehovah, incline Thy heavens and come down, Strike against mountains, and they smoke. 5 Part your heavens, O LORD, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke.
6 Send forth lightning, and scatter them, Send forth Thine arrows, and trouble them, 6 Send forth lightning and scatter [the enemies]; shoot your arrows and rout them.
7 Send forth Thy hand from on high, Free me, and deliver me from many waters, From the hand of sons of a stranger, 7 Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners
8 Because their mouth hath spoken vanity, And their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood. 8 whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.
9 O God, a new song I sing to Thee, On a psaltery of ten strings I sing praise to Thee. 9 I will sing a new song to you, O God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,
10 Who is giving deliverance to kings, Who is freeing David His servant from the sword of evil. 10 to the One who gives victory to kings, who delivers his servant David from the deadly sword.
11 Free me, and deliver me From the hand of sons of a stranger, Because their mouth hath spoken vanity, And their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood, 11 Deliver me and rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.
12 Because our sons [are] as plants, Becoming great in their youth, Our daughters as hewn stones, Polished -- the likeness of a palace, 12 Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.
13 Our garners [are] full, bringing out from kind to kind, Our flocks are bringing forth thousands, Ten thousands in our out-places, 13 Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields;
14 Our oxen are carrying, there is no breach, And there is no outgoing, And there is no crying in our broad places. 14 our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets.
15 O the happiness of the people that is thus, O the happiness of the people whose God [is] Jehovah! 15 Blessed are the people of whom this is true; blessed are the people whose God is the LORD.
