GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will give [you] thanks, O LORD, with all my heart. I will tell about all the miracles you have done. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
2 I will find joy and be glad about you. I will make music to praise 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 enemies retreat, they will stumble and die in your presence. 3 My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
4 You have defended my just cause: You sat down on your throne as a fair judge. 4 For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
5 You condemned nations. You destroyed wicked people. You wiped out their names forever and ever. 5 You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemy is finished--in ruins forever. You have uprooted their cities. Even the memory of them has faded. 6 Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
7 Yet, the LORD is enthroned forever. He has set up his throne for judgment. 7 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.
8 He alone judges the world with righteousness. He judges [its] people fairly. 8 He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice.
9 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust you, O LORD, because you have never deserted those who seek your help. 10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 Make music to praise the LORD, who is enthroned in Zion. Announce to the nations what he has done. 11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 The one who avenges murder has remembered oppressed people. He has never forgotten their cries. 12 For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.
13 Have pity on me, O LORD. Look at what I suffer because of those who hate me. You take me away from the gates 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 recite your praises one by one in the gates of Zion and find joy in 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 sunk into the pit they have made. Their feet are caught in the net they have hidden [to trap others]. 15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 he LORD is known by the judgment he has carried out. The wicked person is trapped by the work of his own hands. Higgaion Selah 16 The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. "Higgaion." "Selah"
17 Wicked people, all the nations who forget God, will return to the grave. 17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.
18 Needy people will not always be forgotten. Nor will the hope of oppressed people be lost forever. 18 But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
19 Arise, O LORD. Do not let mortals gain any power. Let the nations be judged in your presence. 19 Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 trike them with terror, O LORD. Let the nations know that they are [only] mortal. Selah 20 Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. "Selah"
