138 Lord, I will ·thank [praise] you with all my heart; I will ·sing [make a psalm] to you before the gods. 2 I will bow down facing your holy Temple, and I will ·thank [praise] ·you [L your name] for your ·love [loyalty] and ·loyalty [faithfulness]. You have ·made your name and your word greater than anything [L exalted your word above all your name]. 3 On the day I ·called [prayed] to you, you answered me. You ·made me strong and brave [L have emboldened/encouraged my soul with strength].
4 Lord, let all the kings of the earth ·praise [thank] you when they hear the words ·you speak [L of your mouth]. 5 They will sing about ·what the Lord has done [L the way of the Lord], because the Lord’s glory [C his manifest presence] is great.
6 Though the Lord is ·supreme [exalted], he ·takes care of [looks on] ·those who are humble [the lowly], but he ·stays away from the proud [L perceives the proud from far away]. 7 Lord, ·even when I have trouble all around me [L if I walk in the midst of distress], you will keep me alive. When my enemies are angry, you will ·reach down [L send out your hand] and save me by your ·power [L right hand]. 8 Lord, you ·do everything [fulfill/accomplish your plan] for me. Lord, your ·love [loyalty] continues forever. Do not ·leave [abandon; forsake] us, ·whom you made [L the work of your hands].
