King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth ; the LORD revengeth , and is furious ; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies . 2 The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The LORD takes vengeance on his foes and maintains his wrath against his enemies.
3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. 3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry , and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth , and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth . 4 He rebukes the sea and dries it up; he makes all the rivers run dry. Bashan and Carmel wither and the blossoms of Lebanon fade.
5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt , and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. 5 The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it.
6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. 6 Who can withstand his indignation? Who can endure his fierce anger? His wrath is poured out like fire; the rocks are shattered before him.
7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. 7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies . 8 but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of [Nineveh]; he will pursue his foes into darkness.
