|New International Version (© 2011)|
Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar.
King James Bible
Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
American Standard Version
For though Jehovah is high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; But the haughty he knoweth from afar.
Young's Literal Translation
For high is Jehovah, and the lowly He seeth, And the haughty from afar He knoweth.
Psalm 138:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Though the Lord be high - Infinitely great as God is, he regards even the lowest and most inconsiderable part of his creation; but the humble and afflicted man attracts his notice particularly.
But the proud he knoweth afar off - He beholds them at a distance, and has them in utter derision.
