New International Version
A psalm of David.
3 The voice(E) of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory(F) thunders,(G)
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.(H)
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;(I)
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.(J)
6 He makes Lebanon leap(K) like a calf,
Sirion[b](L) like a young wild ox.(M)
7 The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.(N)
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.(O)
9 The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[c](P)
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”(Q)
A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple.[e] Of David.
1 I will exalt(V) you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths(W)
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.(X)
2 Lord my God, I called to you for help,(Y)
and you healed me.(Z)
3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;(AA)
you spared me from going down to the pit.(AB)
4 Sing(AC) the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;(AD)
praise his holy name.(AE)
5 For his anger(AF) lasts only a moment,(AG)
but his favor lasts a lifetime;(AH)
weeping(AI) may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.(AJ)
8 To you, Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 “What is gained if I am silenced,
if I go down to the pit?(AM)
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?(AN)
10 Hear,(AO) Lord, and be merciful to me;(AP)
Lord, be my help.(AQ)”
