Psalms 138 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

A Psalm of David.

138:1I will give thee thanks with my whole heart:

Before the gods will I sing praises unto thee.

138:2I will worship toward thy holy temple,

And give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:

For thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

138:3In the day that I called thou answeredst me,

Thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul.

138:4All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O Jehovah,

For they have heard the words of thy mouth.

138:5Yea, they shall sing of the ways of Jehovah;

For great is the glory of Jehovah.

138:6For though Jehovah is high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly;

But the haughty he knoweth from afar.

138:7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me;

Thou wilt stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of mine enemies,

And thy right hand will save me.

138:8Jehovah will perfect that which concerneth me:

Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, endureth for ever;

Forsake not the works of thine own hands.
