Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I sing praise to you before the gods. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I face your holy Temple, bow down, and praise your name because of your constant love and faithfulness, because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme. 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 You answered me when I called to you; with your strength you strengthened me. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 All the kings in the world will praise you, Lord, because they have heard your promises. 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 They will sing about what you have done and about your great glory. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Even though you are so high above, you care for the lowly, and the proud cannot hide from you. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 When I am surrounded by troubles, you keep me safe. You oppose my angry enemies and save me by your power. 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 You will do everything you have promised; Lord, your love is eternal. Complete the work that you have begun. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
