The fifth book of Psalms, song 138, New English Translation

Psalm 138

   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!
