Psalms 138

By David.

I will give you thanks with my whole heart.

Before the gods, I will sing praises to you.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple,

and give thanks to your Name for your loving kindness and for your truth;

for you have exalted your Name and your Word above all.

3 In the day that I called, you answered me.

You encouraged me with strength in my soul.

4 All the kings of the earth will give you thanks, Yahweh,

for they have heard the words of your mouth.

5 Yes, they will sing of the ways of Yahweh;

for great is Yahweh’s glory.

6 For though Yahweh is high, yet he looks after the lowly;

but the proud, he knows from afar.

7 Though I walk in the middle of trouble, you will revive me.

You will stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies.

Your right hand will save me.

8 Yahweh will fulfill that which concerns me;

your loving kindness, Yahweh, endures forever.

Don’t forsake the works of your own hands.
