Psalm 138

New English Translation

   By David.
   1 I will give you thanks with all my heart; before the heavenly assembly I will sing praises to you.
   2 I will bow down toward your holy temple, and give thanks to your name, because of your loyal love and faithfulness, for you have exalted your promise above the entire sky.
   3 When I cried out for help, you answered me. You made me bold and energized me.
   4 Let all the kings of the earth give thanks to you, O LORD, when they hear the words you speak.
   5 Let them sing about the LORD's deeds, for the LORD's splendor is magnificent.
   6 Though the LORD is exalted, he takes note of the lowly, and recognizes the proud from far away.
   7 Even when I must walk in the midst of danger, you revive me. You oppose my angry enemies, and your right hand delivers me.
   8 The LORD avenges me. O LORD, your loyal love endures. Do not abandon those whom you have made!

King James Version

   A Psalm of David.
   1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
   2 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.
   3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
   4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
   5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.
   6 Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
   7 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.
   8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
