I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods"1 I will sing2 your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple3 and will praise your name4 for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,5 for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame.63
When I called,7 you answered me;8 you greatly emboldened9 me.
May all the kings of the earth10 praise you, LORD, when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing11 of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD12 is great.
Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly,13 but he takes notice of the proud14 from afar.
Though I walk15 in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life.16 You stretch out your hand17 against the anger of my foes;18 with your right hand19 you save me.208
The LORD will vindicate21 me; your love, LORD, endures forever22-- do not abandon23 the works of your hands.24
