King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
33 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name. 33 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.
34 If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen , and the house which I have built for thy name; 34 "When your people go to war against their enemies, wherever you send them, and when they pray to you toward this city you have chosen and the temple I have built for your Name,
35 Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. 35 then hear from heaven their prayer and their plea, and uphold their cause.
36 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies , and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near; 36 "When they sin against you--for there is no one who does not sin--and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to a land far away or near;
37 Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive , and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying , We have sinned , we have done amiss , and have dealt wickedly ; 37 and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, 'We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly';
38 If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives , and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen , and toward the house which I have built for thy name: 38 and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity where they were taken, and pray toward the land you gave their fathers, toward the city you have chosen and toward the temple I have built for your Name;
39 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee. 39 then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their pleas, and uphold their cause. And forgive your people, who have sinned against you.
40 Now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open , and let thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 40 "Now, my God, may your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
41 Now therefore arise , O LORD God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness. 41 "Now arise, O LORD God, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. May your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, may your saints rejoice in your goodness.
42 O LORD God, turn not away the face of thine anointed: remember the mercies of David thy servant. 42 O LORD God, do not reject your anointed one. Remember the great love promised to David your servant."
