Psalm 138: A Psalm Of David

1 I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;

before the gods I sing thy praise;

2 I bow down toward thy holy temple

and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love
and thy faithfulness;
for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.

3 On the day I called,

thou didst answer me,
my strength of soul thou didst increase. *

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee,

O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth;

5 and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD,

for great is the glory of the LORD.

6 For though the LORD is high,

he regards the lowly; but the haughty he knows from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,

thou dost preserve my life;
thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and thy right hand delivers me.

8 The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me;

thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever.
Do not forsake the work of thy hands.
