Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> I will give you thanks 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 bow down toward your holy temple, And give thanks to your Name for your lovingkindness and for your truth; For you have exalted your Name and your Word 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 In the day that I called, you answered me. You encouraged 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 eretz will give you thanks, LORD, For 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 Yes, they will sing of the ways of the LORD; For great is the LORD's glory. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 For though the LORD is high, yet he looks after 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 forth your hand against the wrath of my enemies. 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 fulfill that which concerns me; Your lovingkindness, LORD, endures forever. Don't forsake the works of your 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.
