The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Bravo, God, bravo! Gods and all angels shout, "Encore!" 1 Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
2 In awe before the glory, in awe before God's visible power. Stand at attention! Dress your best to honor him! 2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
3 God thunders across the waters, Brilliant, his voice and his face, streaming brightness - God, across the flood waters. 3 The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
4 God's thunder tympanic, God's thunder symphonic. 4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.
5 God's thunder smashes cedars, God topples the northern cedars. 5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 The mountain ranges skip like spring colts, The high ridges jump like wild kid goats. 6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 God's thunder spits fire. 7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
8 God thunders, the wilderness quakes; He makes the desert of Kadesh shake. 8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 God's thunder sets the oak trees dancing A wild dance, whirling; the pelting rain strips their branches. We fall to our knees - we call out, "Glory!" 9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
10 Above the floodwaters is God's throne from which his power flows, from which he rules the world. 10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
11 God makes his people strong. God gives his people peace. 11 The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
