GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Joyfully sing to the LORD, you righteous people. Praising [the LORD] is proper for decent people. 1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Give thanks with a lyre to the LORD. Make music for him on a ten-stringed harp. 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing a new song to him. Play beautifully and joyfully on stringed instruments. 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 The word of the LORD is correct, and everything he does is trustworthy. 4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice. His mercy fills the earth. 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 The heavens were made by the word of the LORD and all the stars by the breath of his mouth. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathers the water in the sea like a dam and puts the oceans in his storehouses. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD. Let all who live 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 He spoke, and it came into being. He gave the order, and there it stood. 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The LORD blocks the plans of the nations. He frustrates the schemes of the people of the world. 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 The LORD's plan stands firm forever. His thoughts stand firm in every generation. 11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. Blessed are the people he has chosen as his own. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 The LORD looks down from heaven. He sees all of Adam's descendants. 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 From the place where he sits enthroned, he looks down upon all who live on earth. 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 The one who formed their hearts understands everything they do. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 No king achieves a victory with a large army. No warrior rescues himself by his own great strength. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 Horses are not a guarantee for victory. Their great strength cannot help someone escape. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 The LORD's eyes are on those who fear him, on those who wait with hope for his mercy 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 their souls from death and keep them alive during a famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 We wait for the LORD. He is our help and our shield. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts find joy. In his holy name we trust. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your mercy rest on us, O LORD, since we wait with hope for you. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
