138
Of David.
1I give thanks to you with all my heart, Lord.#LXX, Syr, Tg, DSS (11QPs a); MT lacks Lord.
I sing your praise before all other gods.
2I bow toward your holy temple
and thank your name
for your loyal love and faithfulness
because you have made your name and word
greater than everything else.#Correction; Heb uncertain
3On the day I cried out, you answered me.
You encouraged me with inner strength.#Heb uncertain
4Let all the earth’s rulers give thanks to you, Lord,
when they hear what you say.
5Let them sing about the Lord’s ways
because the Lord’s glory is so great!
6Even though the Lord is high,
he can still see the lowly,
but God keeps his distance from the arrogant.
7Whenever I am in deep trouble,
you make me live again;
you send your power against my enemies’ wrath;
you save me with your strong hand.
8The Lord will do all this for my sake.
Your faithful love lasts forever, Lord!
Don’t let go of what your hands
have made.
