Psalm 138

A Thankful Heart

Of David.

I will give you thanks with all my heart;(A)
I will sing your praise before the heavenly beings.[a](B)
I will bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name
for your constant love and truth.
You have exalted your name
and your promise above everything else.[b](C)
On the day I called, you answered me;
you increased strength within me.[c](D)

All the kings on earth will give you thanks, Lord,
when they hear what you have promised.[d](E)
They will sing of the Lord’s ways,
for the Lord’s glory is great.(F)
Though the Lord is exalted,
he takes note of the humble;
but he knows the haughty from a distance.(G)

If I walk into the thick of danger,
you will preserve my life
from the anger of my enemies.(H)
You will extend your hand;
your right hand will save me.(I)
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me.(J)
Lord, your faithful love endures forever;
do not abandon the work of your hands.(K)
