Psalm 138

Of David.

1 I give thanks to you with all my heart, LORD. I sing your praise before all other gods.
2 I bow toward your holy temple and thank your name for your loyal love and faithfulness because you have made your name and word greater than everything else.
3 On the day I cried out, you answered me. You encouraged me with inner strength.
4 Let all the earth's rulers give thanks to you, LORD, when they hear what you say.
5 Let them sing about the LORD's ways because the LORD's glory is so great!
6 Even though the LORD is high, he can still see the lowly, but God keeps his distance from the arrogant.
7 Whenever I am in deep trouble, you make me live again; you send your power against my enemies' wrath; you save me with your strong hand.
8 The LORD will do all this for my sake. Your faithful love lasts forever, LORD! Don't let go of what your hands have made.
