Give Thanks to the Lord
Of David.1 a I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before b the gods I sing your praise;
2I bow down c toward your d holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word. ▼
▼Or you have exalted your word above all your name
3On the day I called, you answered me;
my strength of soul you increased. ▼
▼Hebrew you made me bold in my soul with strength
4 g All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
for they have heard the words of your mouth,
5and they shall sing of h the ways of the Lord,
for great is the glory of the Lord.
6 i For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar.
7 j Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you k preserve my life;
you l stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your m right hand delivers me.
8The Lord will n fulfill his purpose for me;
o your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake p the work of your hands.
