Psalm 138New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
A psalm of David.
1 Lord, I will praise you with all my heart. In front of those who think they are gods I will sing praise to you. 2 I will bow down facing your holy temple. I will praise your name, because you are always loving and faithful. You have honored your holy word even more than your own fame. 3 When I called out to you, you answered me. You made me strong and brave.
4 Lord, may all the kings on earth praise you when they hear about what you have decided. 5 Lord, may they sing about what you have done, because your glory is great.
6 Though the Lord is high above all, he cares for the lowly. Though he is in heaven above, he sees them on earth below. 7 Trouble is all around me, but you keep me alive. You reach out your hand to put a stop to the anger of my enemies. With your powerful right hand you save me. 8 Lord, you will show that I was right to trust you. Lord, your faithful love continues forever. You have done so much for us, so don’t stop now.
