NIV 1984 Bible (Text)

Psalm 47 (NIV)

1Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.

2How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth!

3He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet.

4He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. Selah

5God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.

6Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.

8God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.

Psalm 127:3 (NIV)

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.


Psalm 139:13-18 (NIV)

13For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

15My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

17How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.


Psalm 100:3-5 (NIV)

3Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

5For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
