Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (137-1) <For David himself.> I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: for thou hast heard the words of my mouth. I will sing praise to thee in the sight of the angels: 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 (137-2) I will worship towards thy holy temple, and I will give glory to thy name. For thy mercy, and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy holy name above all. 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 (137-3) In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me: thou shalt multiply strength in my soul. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 (137-4) May all the kings of the earth give glory to thee: for they have heard all the words of thy mouth. 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 (137-5) And let them sing in 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 (137-6) For the Lord is high, and looketh on the low: and the high he knoweth afar off. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 (137-7) If I shall walk in the midst of tribulation, thou wilt quicken me: and thou hast stretched forth thy hand against the wrath of my enemies: and thy right hand hath saved 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 (137-8) The Lord will repay for me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: O despise not the works of thy hands. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
