Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> I will praise Thee with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praise unto Thee. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I will worship toward Thy holy temple, and praise Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and for Thy truth, for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy 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, Thou answered me, and strengthened me 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 Thee, O LORD, when they hear 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 Yea, 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 be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly, but the proud He knoweth afar off. 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, Thou wilt revive me; Thou shalt stretch forth Thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and Thy right hand shall 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 concerneth me; Thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever; forsake not the works of Thine own hands. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
