Psalms 138

1 I will give thee thanks with my whole heart. I will sing praises to thee before the gods.

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and give thanks to thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth. For thou have magnified thy word above all thy name.

3 Thou answered me in the day that I called. Thou encouraged me with strength in my soul.

4 All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth.

5 Yea, they shall sing of the ways of LORD, for great is the glory of LORD.

6 For though LORD is high, yet he has respect to the lowly. But he knows the haughty from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou will revive me. Thou will stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand will save me.

8 LORD will perfect that which concerns me. Thy loving kindness, O LORD, [is] forever. Forsake not the works of thine own hands.
