The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God rules. On your toes, everybody! He rules from his angel throne - take notice! 1 The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
2 God looms majestic in Zion, He towers in splendor over all the big names. 2 Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.
3 Great and terrible your beauty: let everyone praise you! Holy. Yes, holy. 3 Let them praise your great and awesome name-- he is holy.
4 Strong King, lover of justice, You laid things out fair and square; You set down the foundations in Jacob, Foundation stones of just and right ways. 4 The King is mighty, he loves justice-- you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
5 Honor God, our God; worship his rule! Holy. Yes, holy. 5 Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
6 Moses and Aaron were his priests, Samuel among those who prayed to him. They prayed to God and he answered them; 6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the LORD and he answered them.
7 He spoke from the pillar of cloud. And they did what he said; they kept the law he gave them. 7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.
8 And then God, our God, answered them (But you were never soft on their sins). 8 O LORD our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.
9 Lift high God, our God; worship at his holy mountain. Holy. Yes, holy is God our God. 9 Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the LORD our God is holy.
