Psalm 138

YLT 1 By David. I confess Thee, with all my heart, Before the gods I do praise Thee. NIV 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise. YLT 2 I bow myself toward Thy holy temple, And I confess Thy name, For Thy kindness, and for Thy truth, For Thou hast made great Thy saying above all Thy name. NIV 2 I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. YLT 3 In the day I called, when Thou dost answer me, Thou dost strengthen me in my soul [with] strength. NIV 3 When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted. YLT 4 O Jehovah, all kings of earth confess Thee, When they have heard the sayings of Thy mouth. NIV 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth. YLT 5 And they sing in the ways of Jehovah, For great [is] the honour of Jehovah. NIV 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great. YLT 6 For high [is] Jehovah, and the lowly He seeth, And the haughty from afar He knoweth. NIV 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar. YLT 7 If I walk in the midst of distress Thou quickenest me, Against the anger of mine enemies Thou sendest forth Thy hand, And Thy right hand doth save me. NIV 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. YLT 8 Jehovah doth perfect for me, O Jehovah, Thy kindness [is] to the age, The works of Thy hands let not fall! NIV 8 The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
