New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
2 A jealous and avenging God is the Lord, the Lord is avenging and wrathful; the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries and rages against 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 but great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and 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 rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and he dries up all the rivers; Bashan and Carmel wither, and the bloom of Lebanon fades. 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 before him, and the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who live in it. 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? Who can endure the heat of his anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, and by him the rocks are broken in pieces. 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 stronghold in a day of trouble; he protects those who take refuge in him, 7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
8 even in a rushing flood. He will make a full end of his adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness. 8 but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of [Nineveh]; he will pursue his foes into darkness.
