The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {[A Psalm] of David.} I will give thee thanks with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing psalms of thee. 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 the temple of thy holiness, and celebrate thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth; for thou hast magnified thy word 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 when I called thou answeredst me; thou didst encourage 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 earth shall celebrate thee, Jehovah, when they have heard the words 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 shall sing in the ways of Jehovah, for great is the glory of Jehovah. 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 For Jehovah is high; but he looketh upon the lowly, and the proud he knoweth afar off. 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
