1 {Of David} I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; even before the gods will I sing praises unto thee. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name, because of thy loving-kindness and truth; for thou hast magnified thy word, according unto thy great name. 3 When I call upon thee, thou hearest me, and endowest my soul with much strength.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth. 5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD, that great is the glory of the LORD. 6 For though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; as for the proud, he beholdeth them afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, yet shalt thou refresh me; thou shalt stretch forth thine hand upon the furiousness of mine enemies, and thy righthand shall save me. 8 The LORD shall make good his loving-kindness toward me. Yea, thy mercy, O LORD, endureth forever; despise not then the works of thine own hands.
