The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King! and I'll bless your name into eternity. 1 I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2 I'll bless you every day, and keep it up from now to eternity. 2 Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
3 God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough. There are no boundaries to his greatness. 3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
4 Generation after generation stands in awe of your work; each one tells stories of your mighty acts. 4 One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.
5 Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking; I compose songs on your wonders. 5 They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
6 Your marvelous doings are headline news; I could write a book full of the details of your greatness. 6 They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.
7 The fame of your goodness spreads across the country; your righteousness is on everyone's lips. 7 They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
8 God is all mercy and grace - not quick to anger, is rich in love. 8 The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
9 God is good to one and all; everything he does is suffused with grace. 9 The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
10 Creation and creatures applaud you, God; 10 All you have made will praise you, O LORD; your saints will extol you.
11 your holy people bless you. They talk about the glories of your rule, they exclaim over your splendor, 11 They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might,
12 Letting the world know of your power for good, the lavish splendor of your kingdom. 12 so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal; you never get voted out of office. God always does what he says, and is gracious in everything he does. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.
14 God gives a hand to those down on their luck, gives a fresh start to those ready to quit. 14 The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 All eyes are on you, expectant; you give them their meals on time. 15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time.
16 Generous to a fault, you lavish your favor on all creatures. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
17 Everything God does is right - the trademark on all his works is love. 17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made.
18 God's there, listening for all who pray, for all who pray and mean it. 18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
19 He does what's best for those who fear him - hears them call out, and saves them. 19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
20 God sticks by all who love him, but it's all over for those who don't. 20 The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth is filled with God's praise. Let everything living bless him, bless his holy name from now to eternity! 21 My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.
