138 I will praise you with all my heart.+
In the face of other gods,
I will sing praises.*
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple,*+
And I will praise your name+
Because of your loyal love and your faithfulness.
For you have magnified your saying and your name above everything else.*
3 On the day I called, you answered me;+
You made me bold* and strong.+
4 All the kings of the earth will praise you, O Jehovah,+
For they will have heard the promises you have spoken.
5 They will sing about the ways of Jehovah,
For the glory of Jehovah is great.+
6 Though Jehovah is high, he takes note of the humble,+
But the haughty he knows only from a distance.+
7 Even when I walk in the midst of danger, you will preserve me alive.+
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my enemies;
Your right hand will save me.
8 Jehovah will accomplish all things in my behalf.
O Jehovah, your loyal love endures forever;+
Do not forsake the works of your hands.+
