Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Exult in Yahweh, O [you] righteous, [for] praise [is] fitting for the upright. 1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Give thanks to Yahweh with [the] lyre; with a harp of ten strings play to him. 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with jubilant shout. 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of Yahweh [is] upright, and all his work [is done] in faithfulness. 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 loyal love of Yahweh. 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 By the word of Yahweh [the] heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 [He] gathered the waters of the sea like a heap. [He] put [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 Yahweh. Let all [the] inhabitants of [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 himself spoke} and it came to pass. {He himself commanded} and it stood firm. 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 Yahweh brings to nothing [the] plan of nations; he frustrates [the] intents of peoples. 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 The plan of Yahweh stands firm forever, the intents of his heart {from one generation to the next}. 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] Yahweh, the people he has chosen for his inheritance. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven Yahweh looks; he sees all the children of humankind. 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 From his dwelling place he gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth, 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 he who fashions altogether their heart, he who understands all their works. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 The king [is] not saved by [the] greatness of an army. The warrior is not delivered by [the] greatness of strength. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 The horse [is] a false hope for victory, nor can it save by the greatness of its power. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 Behold, the eye of Yahweh [is] on those who fear him, on those who hope for his loyal love 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits for Yahweh; he [is] our help and our shield. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 For in him our heart rejoices because in his holy name we trust. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your loyal love, O Yahweh, be upon us, {even as} we hope in you. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
