New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David. I will praise You with my whole heart; Before the gods I will sing praises to You. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above 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 In the day when I cried out, You answered me, And made me bold 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 shall praise You, O Lord, When they hear 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 Yes, they shall sing of 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 on high, Yet He regards the lowly; But the proud He knows from afar. 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 will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. 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 perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake 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.
