NIRV 1 Sing joyfully to God! He gives us strength. Give a loud shout to the God of Jacob! NIV 1 Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! NIRV 2 Let the music begin.

Blow it again when the moon is full and the Feast of Booths begins.

There we heard a language we didn't understand. NIV 5 When God went out against Egypt, he established it as a statute for Joseph. I heard an unknown voice say: NIRV 6 God said, "I removed the load from your shoulders. I set your hands free from carrying heavy baskets. NIV 6 “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. NIRV 7 You called out when you were in trouble, and I saved you. I answered you out of a thundercloud.

NIRV 10 I am the LORD your God. I brought you up out of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things. NIV 10 I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt.

NIRV 12 So I let them go their own stubborn way. I let them follow their own sinful plans. NIV 12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. NIRV 13 "I wish my people would listen to me! I wish Israel would live as I want them to live! NIV 13 “If my people would only listen to me, if Israel would only follow my ways, NIRV 14 Then I would quickly bring their enemies under control. I would use my power against their attackers. NIV 14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes! NIRV 15 Those who hate me would bow down to me in fear. They would be punished forever. NIV 15 Those who hate the LORD would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever. NIRV 16 But you would be fed with the finest wheat. I would satisfy you with the sweetest honey." NIV 16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
