Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will give you praise with all my heart: I will make melody to you before the gods. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I will give worship before your holy Temple, praising your name for your mercy and for your unchanging faith: for you have made your word greater than all your name. 2 I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
3 When my cry came to your ears you gave me an answer, and made me great with strength in my soul. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 All the kings of the earth will give you praise, O Lord, when the words of your mouth come to their ears. 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 They will make songs about the ways of the Lord; for great is the glory of the Lord. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Though the Lord is high, he sees those who are low; and he has knowledge from far off of those who are lifted up. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 Even when trouble is round me, you will give me life; your hand will be stretched out against the wrath of my haters, and your right hand will be my salvation. 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me.
8 The Lord will make all things complete for me: O Lord, your mercy is eternal; do not give up the works of your hands. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
