19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,(A)
    who daily bears our burdens.(B)
20 Our God is a God who saves;(C)
    from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.(D)
21 Surely God will crush the heads(E) of his enemies,
    the hairy crowns of those who go on in their sins.
22 The Lord says, “I will bring them from Bashan;
    I will bring them from the depths of the sea,(F)
23 that your feet may wade in the blood of your foes,(G)
    while the tongues of your dogs(H) have their share.”

24 Your procession, God, has come into view,
    the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.(I)
25 In front are the singers,(J) after them the musicians;(K)
    with them are the young women playing the timbrels.(L)
26 Praise God in the great congregation;(M)
    praise the Lord in the assembly of Israel.(N)
27 There is the little tribe(O) of Benjamin,(P) leading them,
    there the great throng of Judah’s princes,
    and there the princes of Zebulun and of Naphtali.(Q)

28 Summon your power,(R) God[a];
    show us your strength,(S) our God, as you have done(T) before.
29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem
    kings will bring you gifts.(U)
30 Rebuke the beast(V) among the reeds,(W)
    the herd of bulls(X) among the calves of the nations.
Humbled, may the beast bring bars of silver.
    Scatter the nations(Y) who delight in war.(Z)
31 Envoys will come from Egypt;(AA)
    Cush[b](AB) will submit herself to God.

32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth,(AC)
    sing praise(AD) to the Lord,
33 to him who rides(AE) across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens,
    who thunders(AF) with mighty voice.(AG)
34 Proclaim the power(AH) of God,
    whose majesty(AI) is over Israel,
    whose power is in the heavens.
35 You, God, are awesome(AJ) in your sanctuary;(AK)
    the God of Israel gives power and strength(AL) to his people.(AM)

Praise be to God!(AN)
