New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the choir director: A psalm of David. A song. What mighty praise, O God, belongs to you in Zion. We will fulfill our vows to you, 1 Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.
2 for you answer our prayers, and to you all people will come. 2 O you who hear prayer, to you all men will come.
3 Though our hearts are filled with sins, you forgive them all. 3 When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.
4 What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What joys await us inside your holy Temple. 4 Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple.
5 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. 5 You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,
6 You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength. 6 who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength,
7 You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations. 7 who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.
8 Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy. 8 Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.
9 You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The rivers of God will not run dry; they provide a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so. 9 You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.
10 You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops. 10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
11 You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance. 11 You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
12 The wilderness becomes a lush pasture, and the hillsides blossom with joy. 12 The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness.
13 The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are carpeted with grain. They all shout and sing for joy! 13 The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
