New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
19 He leads priests away stripped of status; he overthrows the mighty. 19 He leads priests away stripped and overthrows men long established.
20 He silences the trusted adviser, and he removes the insight of the elders. 20 He silences the lips of trusted advisers and takes away the discernment of elders.
21 He pours disgrace upon princes and confiscates weapons from the strong." 21 He pours contempt on nobles and disarms the mighty.
22 "He floods the darkness with light; he brings light to the deepest gloom. 22 He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light.
23 He raises up nations, and he destroys them. He makes nations expand, and he abandons them. 23 He makes nations great, and destroys them; he enlarges nations, and disperses them.
24 He takes away the understanding of kings, and he leaves them wandering in a wasteland without a path. 24 He deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason; he sends them wandering through a trackless waste.
25 They grope in the darkness without a light. He makes them stagger like drunkards." 25 They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards.
