Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 ejoice in ADONAI, you righteous! Praise is well-suited to the upright. 1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Give thanks to ADONAI with the lyre, sing praises to him with a ten-stringed harp. 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song, make music at your best among shouts of joy. 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of ADONAI is true, and all his work is trustworthy. 4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
5 He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the grace of ADONAI. 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 By the word of ADONAI the heavens were made, and their whole host by a breath from his mouth. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He collects the sea waters together in a heap; he puts the deeps in storehouses. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear ADONAI! Let all living in the world stand in awe of him. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him.
9 For he spoke, and there it was; he commanded, and there it stood. 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 ADONAI brings to nothing the plans of nations, he foils the plans of the peoples. 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the counsel of ADONAI stands forever, his heart's plans are for all generations. 11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
12 How blessed is the nation whose God is ADONAI, the people he chose as his heritage! 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 ADONAI looks out from heaven; he sees every human being; 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 from the place where he lives he watches everyone living on earth, 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 he who fashioned the hearts of them all and understands all they do. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 A king is not saved by the size of his army, a strong man not delivered by his great strength. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 To rely on a horse for safety is vain, nor does its great power assure escape. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But ADONAI's eyes watch over those who fear him, over those who wait for his grace 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to rescue them from death and keep them alive in famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 We are waiting for ADONAI; he is our help and shield. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 For in him our hearts rejoice, because we trust in his holy name. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your mercy, ADONAI, be over us, because we put our hope in you. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
