Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The psalm of Asaph. God, the Lord of gods, spake/God, the God of gods, spake; and called the earth, from the rising of the sun till to the going down. (The song of Asaph. God, the Lord of gods, spoke/God, the God of gods, spoke; and called to the people of the earth, from the rising of the sun unto the going down of it.) 1 The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets.
2 The shape of his fairness from Zion, God shall come openly; (God shineth from Zion, perfect in beauty;) 2 From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.
3 our God, and he shall not be still. Fire shall burn on high in his sight; and a strong tempest in his compass. (our God shall come, and he shall not be silent. Fire shall burn on high before him; and it shall be a strong tempest surrounding him/and a strong tempest shall surround him.) 3 Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages.
4 He called heaven above; and the earth, to (witness him) deem his people. (He calleth heaven above, and the earth beneath, to the judgement of his people.) 4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people:
5 Gather ye to him his saints; that ordain his testament above sacrifices. (And he saith, Gather my saints to me; those who have made a covenant with me, by offering a sacrifice.) 5 "Gather to me my consecrated ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice."
6 And heavens shall show his rightwiseness/And heavens shall tell his rightfulness; for God is the judge. (And the heavens shall tell out his righteousness; for God himself is the judge.) 6 And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for God himself is judge. "Selah"
7 My people, hear thou, and I shall speak to Israel; and I shall witness to thee, I am God, thy God. (My people, hear thou, and I shall speak; Israel, I shall testify against thee; I am God, thy God.) 7 "Hear, O my people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you: I am God, your God.
8 I shall not reprove thee in thy sacrifices; and thy burnt sacrifices be ever[more] before me. (I shall not rebuke thee for thy sacrifices, and for thy burnt sacrifices, that be before me forevermore./Shall I not rebuke thee for thy sacrifices, and for thy burnt sacrifices, that be before me forevermore?) 8 I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
9 I shall not take calves of thine house; neither goat bucks of thy flocks. (But I do not need calves from thy house, or thy farm; or goat bucks from thy flocks.) 9 I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens,
10 For all the wild beasts of (the) woods be mine; work beasts, and oxes in hills (and the work beasts as well, and the oxen on the hills). 10 for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I have known all the volatiles of the firmament; and the fairness of the field is with me. (I know all the birds on those hills; and the wild beasts of the fields be mine.) 11 I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine.
12 If I shall be hungry, I shall not say to thee; for the world and the fullness thereof is mine. (If I am hungry, I have no need to tell thee; for the world and its fullness be mine.) 12 If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
13 Whether I shall eat the flesh of bulls? either shall I drink the blood of goat bucks? (Shall I eat the flesh of bulls? or drink the blood of goat bucks? Nay!) 13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer thou to God the sacrifice of praising; and yield thine avows to the highest God. (Offer, or give, thou to God the sacrifice of praise; and pay thy vows to the Most High God.) 14 Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High,
15 And inwardly call thou me in the day of tribulation; and I shall deliver thee, and thou shalt honour me. (And call thou on me in the day of trouble; and I shall save thee, and then thou shalt honour me.) 15 and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."
16 But God said to the sinner, Why tellest thou out my rightfulnesses; and takest my testament by thy mouth? (But God said to the sinner, Why should thou tell out my statutes? and why hast thou my covenant in thy mouth?) 16 But to the wicked, God says: "What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?
17 Soothly thou hatedest lore, or discipline; and hast cast away my words behind (thee). (Truly thou hatedest chastisement; and hast thrown away my words behind thee.) 17 You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.
18 If thou sawest a thief, thou rannest with him; and thou settedest thy part with adulterers. 18 When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 Thy mouth was plenteous of malice; and thy tongue meddled together guiles. (Thy mouth is full of malice; and thy tongue mixeth up batches of lies.) 19 You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 Thou sitting spakest against thy brother, and thou settedest slander against the son of thy mother; (And thou sitteth down, and speakest against thy brother, yea, thou settest forth slander against thy mother's son;) 20 You speak continually against your brother and slander your own mother's son.
21 thou didest these things, and I was still. Thou guessedest wickedly, that I shall be like thee; I shall reprove thee, and I shall set (them) against thy face. (thou didest these things, and I was silent. And thou wickedly guessedest that I was just like thee; but I shall rebuke thee, and I shall do it to thy face.) 21 These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was altogether like you. But I will rebuke you and accuse you to your face.
22 Ye that forget God, understand these things; lest sometime he ravish, and none be that shall deliver. (Ye who forget God, understand these things; lest sometime I tear thee in pieces, and there be no one who shall save thee.) 22 "Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with none to rescue:
23 The sacrifice of praising shall honour me; and there is the way, wherein I shall show to him the health of God. (The sacrifice of praise shall honour me; and to those who follow my way/and to those who obey me, I shall give them the salvation of God.) 23 He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God."
