Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I give you thanks with my whole heart; before [the] gods I sing your praise. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name, because of your loyal love and faithfulness, for you have magnified your word according to 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} I called and you answered me, you emboldened me in my soul [with] strength. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 All [the] kings of [the] earth will praise you, O Yahweh, when they have heard the words of your mouth, 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 and they will sing of the ways of Yahweh, because Yahweh's glory [is] great. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Though Yahweh [is] high, yet he sees [the] lowly, but [the] proud he perceives at a distance. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve me alive. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my enemies, and you save me [with] your right 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 Yahweh accomplishes [things] for my benefit. O Yahweh, your loyal love [endures] forever; do not abandon 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.
