New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, I will thank you with all my heart; I will sing 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 will bow down facing your holy Temple, and I will thank you for your love and loyalty. You have made your name and your word greater than anything. 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 On the day I called to you, you answered me. You made me strong and brave. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 Lord, let all the kings of the earth praise you when they hear the words you speak. 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 the Lord has done, because the Lord's glory is great. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Though the Lord is supreme, he takes care of those who are humble, but he stays away from the proud. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 Lord, even when I have trouble all around me, you will keep me alive. When my enemies are angry, you will reach down 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 Lord, you do everything for me. Lord, your love continues forever. Do not leave us, whom you made. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
