Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 All you who are righteous, shout joyfully to the LORD! It's right for those who do right to praise God. 1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre! Sing praises to him with the ten-stringed harp! 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song! Play your best with joyful shouts! 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 Because the LORD's word is right, his every act is done in good faith. 4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
5 He loves righteousness and justice; the LORD's faithful love fills the whole earth. 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 The skies were made by the LORD's word, all their starry multitude by the breath of his mouth. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathered the ocean waters into a heap; he put the deep seas into storerooms. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
8 All the earth honors the LORD; all the earth's inhabitants stand in awe of him. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him.
9 Because when he spoke, it happened! When he commanded, there it was! 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The LORD overrules what the nations plan; he frustrates what the peoples intend to do. 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the LORD's plan stands forever; what he intends to do lasts from one generation to the next. 11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
12 The nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom God has chosen as his possession, is truly happy! 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 The LORD looks down from heaven; he sees every human being. 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 From his dwelling place God observes all who live on earth. 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 God is the one who made all their hearts, the one who knows everything they do. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 Kings aren't saved by the strength of their armies; warriors aren't rescued by how much power they have. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A warhorse is a bad bet for victory; it can't save despite its great strength. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But look here: the LORD's eyes watch all who honor him, all who wait for his faithful love, 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver their lives from death and keep them alive during a famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 Our heart rejoices in God because we trust his holy name. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 LORD, let your faithful love surround us, because we wait for you. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
