Psalms - Chapter 138

1

Of David. I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.


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

When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.


4

May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.


5

May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.


6

Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.


7

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me.


8

The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
