A Psalm of David.
1I will give thee thanks with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praises unto thee. 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. 3In the day that I called thou answeredst me, thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul. 4All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O Lord, for they have heard the words of thy mouth. 5Yea, they shall sing of the ways of the Lord; for great is the glory of the Lord. 6For though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the haughty he knoweth from afar. 7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. 8The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever; forsake not the works of thine own hands.
