1 I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise; 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything. 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, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O 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 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 For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly; but the haughty he perceives from far away. 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 preserve me against the wrath of my enemies; you stretch out your hand, and your right hand delivers 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 his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
