New International Reader's Version

Psalm 93

Psalm 93

The Lord rules.
    He puts on majesty as if it were clothes.
    The Lord puts on majesty and strength.
Indeed, the world has been set in place.
    It is firm and secure.
Lord, you began to rule a long time ago.
    You have always existed.

Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice.
    They have lifted up their pounding waves.
But Lord, you are more powerful than the roar of the ocean.
    You are stronger than the waves of the sea.
    Lord, you are powerful in heaven.

Your laws do not change, Lord.
    Your temple will be holy
    for all time to come.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 93

The Majesty of the Lord.

1The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty and splendor;
The Lord has clothed and encircled Himself with strength;
the world is firmly established, it cannot be moved.

Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.


The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their pounding waves.

More than the sounds of many waters,
More than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The Lord on high is mighty.

Your precepts are fully confirmed and completely reliable;
Holiness adorns Your house,
O Lord, forever.
