Psalm 138

New Int. Readers Version

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 loving and faithful. You have honored your name and your word more than anything else. 3 When I called out to you, you answered me. You made me strong and brave. 4 Lord, may all of the kings on earth praise you when they hear about what you have promised. 5 Lord, may they sing about what you have done, because your glory is great. 6 The Lord is in heaven. But he watches over those who are free of pride. He knows those who are proud and stays far away from them. 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 do everything you have planned for me. Lord, your faithful love continues forever. You have done so much for us. Don't stop now.

Psalm 138

English Standard Version

1 Of David. I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise; (Ps 95:3; Ps 96:5; Ps 111:1) 2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.[1] (1Ki 8:29; Ps 5:7; Ps 28:2) 3 On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased.[2] 4 All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth, (Ps 102:15) 5 and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord. (Ps 103:7) 6 For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar. (Ps 113:5; Ps 131:1; Pr 3:34; Lu 1:48; Jas 4:6) 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me. (1Sa 24:6; Job 1:12; Ps 23:4; Ps 60:5; Ps 71:20) 8 The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. (1Ch 16:41; Ps 57:2; Ps 100:3; Ps 136:1; Php 1:6)
