New International Version
Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation

You asked, 'Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?' Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.
