BBE 1 Be glad in the Lord, O doers of righteousness; for praise is beautiful for the upright. NIV 1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. BBE 2 Give praise to the Lord on the corded instrument; make melody to him with instruments of music. NIV 2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. BBE 3 Make a new song to him; playing expertly with a loud noise. NIV 3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. BBE 4 For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his works are certain. NIV 4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. BBE 5 His delight is in righteousness and wisdom; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord. NIV 5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. BBE 6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the army of heaven by the breath of his mouth. NIV 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. BBE 7 He makes the waters of the sea come together in a mass; he keeps the deep seas in store-houses. NIV 7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. BBE 8 Let the earth be full of the fear of the Lord; let all the people of the world be in holy fear of him. NIV 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him. BBE 9 For he gave the word, and it was done; by his order it was fixed for ever. NIV 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. BBE 10 The Lord undoes the designs of the nations; he makes the thoughts of the peoples without effect. NIV 10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. BBE 11 The Lord's purpose is eternal, the designs of his heart go on through all the generations of man. NIV 11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. BBE 12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he has taken for his heritage. NIV 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. BBE 13 The Lord is looking down from heaven; he sees all the sons of men; NIV 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; BBE 14 From his house he keeps watch on all who are living on the earth; NIV 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth-- BBE 15 He makes all their hearts; their works are clear to him. NIV 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do. BBE 16 A king's salvation is not in the power of his army; a strong man does not get free by his great strength. NIV 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. BBE 17 A horse is a false hope; his great power will not make any man free from danger. NIV 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. BBE 18 See, the eye of the Lord is on those in whose hearts is the fear of him, on those whose hope is in his mercy; NIV 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, BBE 19 To keep their souls from death; and to keep them living in time of need. NIV 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. BBE 20 Our souls are waiting for the Lord; he is our help and our salvation.

NIV 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. BBE 22 Let your mercy be on us, O Lord, as we are waiting for you. NIV 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
