Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song. Praise is due to thee, O God, in Zion; and to thee shall vows be performed, 1 Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.
2 O thou who hearest prayer! To thee shall all flesh come 2 O you who hear prayer, to you all men will come.
3 on account of sins. When our transgressions prevail over us, thou dost forgive them. 3 When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.
4 Blessed is he whom thou dost choose and bring near, to dwell in thy courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, thy holy temple! 4 Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple.
5 By dread deeds thou dost answer us with deliverance, O God of our salvation, who art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of the farthest seas; 5 You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,
6 who by thy strength hast established the mountains, being girded with might; 6 who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength,
7 who dost still the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples; 7 who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.
8 so that those who dwell at earth's farthest bounds are afraid at thy signs; thou makest the outgoings of the morning and the evening to shout for joy. 8 Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.
9 Thou visitest the earth and waterest it, thou greatly enrichest it; the river of God is full of water; thou providest their grain, for so thou hast prepared it. 9 You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.
10 Thou waterest its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth. 10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy bounty; the tracks of thy chariot drip with fatness. 11 You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
12 The pastures of the wilderness drip, the hills gird themselves with joy, 12 The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness.
13 the meadows clothe themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves with grain, they shout and sing together for joy. 13 The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
