Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will thank Yahweh with all my heart. I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing [the praise of] your name, O Most High. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
3 When my enemies turn back, they will stumble and perish because of your presence. 3 My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
4 For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat on [the] throne judging correctly. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
5 You have rebuked [the] nations; you have destroyed [the] wicked. Their name you have blotted out forever and ever. 5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemies are destroyed [in] ruins forever, and you have uprooted [their] cities; their very memory has perished. 6 Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
7 But Yahweh sits [enthroned] forever. He has established his throne for judgment. 7 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.
8 And he will judge [the] world with righteousness. He will judge [the] peoples with equity. 8 He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice.
9 And Yahweh will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of distress. 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 And those who know your name will trust in you, for you do not forsake those [who] seek you, O Yahweh. 10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing [praises] to Yahweh [who] sits [enthroned] in Zion. Tell his deeds among the peoples, 11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 for he [who] {avenges bloodshed} remembers them. He does not forget the distressed cry of [the] afflicted. 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
13 Be gracious to me, O Yahweh. See my suffering from [those who] hate me, [you who] lift me up from the gates of death, 13 O LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 so that I may tell of all your praises. In the gates of the daughter of Zion let me rejoice in your salvation. 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of the Daughter of Zion and there rejoice in your salvation.
15 [The] nations have fallen in [the] pit [that] they made; their foot is caught in [the] net that they hid. 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 Yahweh has made himself known; he has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his hands. Higgaion Selah 16 The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. "Higgaion." "Selah"
17 [The] wicked shall turn back to Sheol, all [the] nations forgetting God, 17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.
18 for [the] needy shall not always be forgotten; the hope of the poor shall never perish. 18 But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
19 Rise up, O Yahweh, let not humans prevail; let [the] nations be judged before you. 19 Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 O Yahweh, put them in fear. Let [the] nations know they [are merely] human. Selah 20 Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. "Selah"
