Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I give thanks to you with all my heart, LORD. I sing your praise before all other gods. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I bow toward your holy temple and thank your name for your loyal love and faithfulness because you have made your name and word greater than everything else. 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 On the day I cried out, you answered me. You encouraged me with inner strength. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 Let all the earth's rulers give thanks to you, LORD, when they hear what you say. 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 Let them sing about the LORD's ways because the LORD's glory is so great! 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Even though the LORD is high, he can still see the lowly, but God keeps his distance from the arrogant. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 Whenever I am in deep trouble, you make me live again; you send your power against my enemies' wrath; you save me with your strong hand. 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 do all this for my sake. Your faithful love lasts forever, LORD! Don't let go of what your hands have made. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
