Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will give you praise, O Lord, with all my heart; I will make clear all the wonder of your works. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
2 I will be glad and have delight in you: I will make a song of praise to your name, O Most High. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
3 When my haters are turned back, they will be broken and overcome before you. 3 My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
4 For you gave approval to my right and my cause; you were seated in your high place judging in righteousness. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
5 You have said sharp words to the nations, you have sent destruction on the sinners, you have put an end to their name for ever and ever. 5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 You have given their towns to destruction; the memory of them has gone; they have become waste for ever. 6 Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
7 But the Lord is King for ever: he has made ready his high seat for judging. 7 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.
8 And he will be the judge of the world in righteousness, giving true decisions for the peoples. 8 He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice.
9 The Lord will be a high tower for those who are crushed down, a high tower in times of trouble; 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 And those who have knowledge of your name will put their faith in you; because you, Lord, have ever given your help to those who were waiting for you. 10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 Make songs of praise to the Lord, whose house is in Zion: make his doings clear to the people. 11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 When he makes search for blood, he has them in his memory: he is not without thought for the cry of the poor. 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
13 Have mercy on me, O Lord, and see how I am troubled by my haters; let me be lifted up from the doors of death; 13 O LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 So that I may make clear all your praise in the house of the daughter of Zion: I will be glad because of your salvation. 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of the Daughter of Zion and there rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have gone down into the hole which they made: in their secret net is their foot taken. 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 The Lord has given knowledge of himself through his judging: the evil-doer is taken in the net which his hands had made. (Higgaion. Selah.) 16 The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. "Higgaion." "Selah"
17 The sinners and all the nations who have no memory of God will be turned into the underworld. 17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.
18 For the poor will not be without help; the hopes of those in need will not be crushed for ever. 18 But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
19 Up! O Lord; let not man overcome you: let the nations be judged before you. 19 Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord, so that the nations may see that they are only men. (Selah.) 20 Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. "Selah"
