A Psalm of David.
I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods [or, Elohim] will I sing praise unto thee.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, 0 Jehovah, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
Yea, they shall sing in the ways of Jehovah: for great is the glory of Jehovah.
Though Jehovah be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
Jehovah will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Jehovah, endureth forever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
138:1, 2 I will praise thee, before the gods, toward thy temple for kindness and truth and thy word, magnified above all thy name; 3 I was heard; 4, 5 all kings shall praise thee, 6 Jehovah is high, yet he respects the lowly and looks at the proud afar off; 7 he delivers me and will perfect all for me.
