World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Rejoice in Yahweh, you righteous! 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. Sing praises to him with the harp of ten strings. 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 a shout of joy! 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of Yahweh is right. 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 lovingkindness of Yahweh. 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 By the word of Yahweh were the heavens made, All the host of them 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 waters of the sea together as a heap. He lays up 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 spoke, and it was done. He commanded, and it stood firm. 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 Yahweh brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect. 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 The counsel of Yahweh stands fast forever, The thoughts of his heart to all generations. 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 whom he has chosen for his own inheritance. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 Yahweh looks from heaven. He sees all the sons of men. 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 From the place of his habitation he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth. 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 He who fashions all of their hearts. He considers all of their works. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 There is no king saved by the multitude of a host. A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain thing for safety, Neither does he deliver any by his great 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 in his lovingkindness; 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, To keep them alive in famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul has waited 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 our heart shall rejoice in him, Because we have trusted in his holy name. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your lovingkindness be on us, Yahweh, Since we have hoped in you. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
