Psalms 138

A Thankful Heart


I will give You thanks with all my heart; a
I will sing Your praise before the heavenly beings.
Or before the gods, or before judges, or before kings; Hb elohim
2 I will bow down toward Your holy temple
and give thanks to Your name
for Your constant love and truth.
You have exalted Your name
and Your promise above everything else. d
3 On the day I called, You answered me;
You increased strength within me.
Hb obscure

4 All the kings on earth will give You thanks, Lord,
when they hear what You have promised.
Lit hear the words of Your mouth
5 They will sing of the Lord’s ways,
for the Lord’s glory is great. i
6 Though the Lord is exalted,
He takes note of the humble;
but He knows the haughty from a distance. j

7 If I walk into the thick of danger,
You will preserve my life
from the anger of my enemies. k
You will extend Your hand;
Your right hand will save me. l
8 The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. m
Lord, Your love is eternal;
do not abandon the work of Your hands. n
