The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 What a beautiful thing, God, to give thanks, to sing an anthem to you, the High God! 1 It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 To announce your love each daybreak, sing your faithful presence all through the night, 2 to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,
3 Accompanied by dulcimer and harp, the full-bodied music of strings. 3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.
4 You made me so happy, God. I saw your work and I shouted for joy. 4 For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
5 How magnificent your work, God! How profound your thoughts! 5 How great are your works, O LORD, how profound your thoughts!
6 Dullards never notice what you do; fools never do get it. 6 The senseless man does not know, fools do not understand,
7 When the wicked popped up like weeds and all the evil men and women took over, You mowed them down, finished them off once and for all. 7 that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be forever destroyed.
8 You, God, are High and Eternal. 8 But you, O LORD, are exalted forever.
9 Look at your enemies, God! Look at your enemies - ruined! Scattered to the winds, all those hirelings of evil! 9 For surely your enemies, O LORD, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.
10 But you've made me strong as a charging bison, you've honored me with a festive parade. 10 You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me.
11 The sight of my critics going down is still fresh, the rout of my malicious detractors. My ears are filled with the sounds of promise: 11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.
12 "Good people will prosper like palm trees, Grow tall like Lebanon cedars; 12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 transplanted to God's courtyard, They'll grow tall in the presence of God, 13 planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 lithe and green, virile still in old age." 14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,
15 Such witnesses to upright God! My Mountain, my huge, holy Mountain! 15 proclaiming, "The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."
