Psalms 138

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.
