Psalm 138 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Divine Presence

138 By King David
I thank you, Lord, and with all the passion of my heart
I worship you in the presence of angels![a]
Heaven’s mighty ones will hear my voice
as I sing my loving praise to you.
I bow down before your divine presence
and bring you my deepest worship
as I experience your tender love and your living truth.
For the promises of your word and the fame of your name
have been magnified above all else!
At the very moment I called out to you, you answered me!
You strengthened me deep within my soul
and breathed fresh courage into me.
One day all the kings of the earth
will rise to give you thanks when they hear the living words
that I have heard you speak.
They too will sing of your wonderful ways,
for your ineffable glory is great!
For though you are lofty and exalted,
you stoop to embrace the lowly.
Yet you keep your distance from those filled with pride.
By your mighty power I can walk through any devastation
and you will keep me alive, reviving me.
Your power set me free from the hatred of my enemies.
You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me!
Since your love for me is constant and endless,
I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!
