King James Bible
The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
Darby Bible Translation

I believe these to be two distinct Psalms. The subjects of them are not exactly the same, though something similar; and they plainly refer to different periods.

May those who delight in my vindication shout for joy and gladness; may they always say, "The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant."
The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;
I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me.
Extol the LORD, Jerusalem; praise your God, Zion.
For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
