Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer, `On the Death of Labben.' -- A Psalm of David. I confess, O Jehovah, with all my heart, I recount all Thy wonders, 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
2 I rejoice and exult in Thee, I praise Thy Name, O Most High. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
3 In mine enemies turning backward, they stumble and perish from Thy face. 3 My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
4 For Thou hast done my judgment and my right. Thou hast sat on a throne, A judge of righteousness. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
5 Thou hast rebuked nations, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Their name Thou hast blotted out to the age and for ever. 5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 O thou Enemy, Finished have been destructions for ever, As to cities thou hast plucked up, Perished hath their memorial with them. 6 Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
7 And Jehovah to the age abideth, He is preparing for judgment His throne. 7 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.
8 And He judgeth the world in righteousness, He judgeth the peoples in uprightness. 8 He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice.
9 And Jehovah is a tower for the bruised, A tower for times of adversity. 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 They trust in Thee who do know Thy name, For Thou hast not forsaken Those seeking Thee, O Jehovah. 10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing ye praise to Jehovah, inhabiting Zion, Declare ye among the peoples His acts, 11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 For He who is seeking for blood Them hath remembered, He hath not forgotten the cry of the afflicted. 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
13 Favour me, O Jehovah, See mine affliction by those hating me, Thou who liftest 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 recount all Thy praise, In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I rejoice on Thy salvation. 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of the Daughter of Zion and there rejoice in your salvation.
15 Sunk have nations in a pit they made, In a net that they hid hath their foot been captured. 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 Jehovah hath been known, Judgment He hath done, By a work of his hands Hath the wicked been snared. Meditation. Selah. 16 The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. "Higgaion." "Selah"
17 The wicked do turn back to Sheol, All nations forgetting God. 17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.
18 For not for ever is the needy forgotten, The hope of the humble lost to the age. 18 But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
19 Rise, O Jehovah, let not man be strong, Let nations be judged before Thy face. 19 Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Appoint, O Jehovah, a director to them, Let nations know they [are] men! Selah. 20 Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. "Selah"
