CEB 1 I will thank you, LORD, with all my heart; I will talk about all your wonderful acts. NRS 1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. CEB 2 I will celebrate and rejoice in you; I will sing praises to your name, Most High. NRS 2 I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. CEB 3 When my enemies turn and retreat, they fall down and die right in front of you NRS 3 When my enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished before you. CEB 4 because you have established justice for me and my claim, because you rule from the throne, establishing justice rightly. NRS 4 For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat on the throne giving righteous judgment. CEB 5 You've denounced the nations, destroyed the wicked. You've erased their names for all time. NRS 5 You have rebuked the nations, you have destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name forever and ever. CEB 6 Every enemy is wiped out, like something ruined forever. You've torn down their cities— even the memory of them is dead. NRS 6 The enemies have vanished in everlasting ruins; their cities you have rooted out; the very memory of them has perished. CEB 7 But the LORD rules forever! He assumes his throne for the sake of justice. NRS 7 But the Lord sits enthroned forever, he has established his throne for judgment. CEB 8 He will establish justice in the world rightly; he will judge all people fairly. NRS 8 He judges the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with equity. CEB 9 The LORD is a safe place for the oppressed— a safe place in difficult times. NRS 9 The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. CEB 10 Those who know your name trust you because you have not abandoned any who seek you, LORD. NRS 10 And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. CEB 11 Sing praises to the LORD, who lives in Zion! Proclaim his mighty acts among all people! NRS 11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion. Declare his deeds among the peoples. CEB 12 Because the one who avenges bloodshed remembers those who suffer; the LORD hasn't forgotten their cries for help. NRS 12 For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted. CEB 13 Have mercy on me, LORD! Just look how I suffer because of those who hate me. But you are the one who brings me back from the very gates of death NRS 13 Be gracious to me, O Lord. See what I suffer from those who hate me; you are the one who lifts me up from the gates of death, CEB 14 so I can declare all your praises, so I can rejoice in your salvation in the gates of Daughter Zion. NRS 14 so that I may recount all your praises, and, in the gates of daughter Zion, rejoice in your deliverance. CEB 15 The nations have fallen into the hole they themselves made! Their feet are caught in the very net they themselves hid! NRS 15 The nations have sunk in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid has their own foot been caught. CEB 16 The LORD is famous for the justice he has done; it's his own doing that the wicked are trapped. Higgayon. Selah NRS 16 The Lord has made himself known, he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.+p[Higgaion. Selah] CEB 17 Let the wicked go straight to the grave, the same for every nation that forgets God. NRS 17 The wicked shall depart to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.

NRS 18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever. CEB 19 Get up, LORD! Don't let people prevail! Let the nations be judged before you. NRS 19 Rise up, O Lord! Do not let mortals prevail; let the nations be judged before you. CEB 20 Strike them with fear, LORD. Let the nations know they are only human. Selah NRS 20 Put them in fear, O Lord; let the nations know that they are only human. (Selah)
