Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David. I confess Thee, with all my heart, Before the gods I do praise Thee. 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
2 I bow myself toward Thy holy temple, And I confess Thy name, For Thy kindness, and for Thy truth, For Thou hast made great Thy saying 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 I called, when Thou dost answer me, Thou dost strengthen me in my soul [with] strength. 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
4 O Jehovah, all kings of earth confess Thee, When they have heard the sayings of Thy mouth. 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 And they sing in the ways of Jehovah, For great [is] the honour of Jehovah. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 For high [is] Jehovah, and the lowly He seeth, And the haughty from afar He knoweth. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
7 If I walk in the midst of distress Thou quickenest me, Against the anger of mine enemies Thou sendest forth Thy hand, And Thy right hand doth 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 Jehovah doth perfect for me, O Jehovah, Thy kindness [is] to the age, The works of Thy hands let not fall! 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
