Psalm 138:1-Psalm 139:1 - A Thankful Heart
1 LORD, I thank you with all of my heart; because you heard the words that I spoke, I will sing your praise before the heavenly beings. 2 I will bow down in worship toward your holy Temple and give thanks to your name for your gracious love and truth, for you have done great things to carry out your word consistent with your name. 3 When I called out, you answered me; you strengthened me.
4 LORD, all the kings of the earth will give you thanks, for they have heard what you have spoken. 5 They will sing about the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD! 6 Though the LORD is highly exalted, yet he pays attention to those who are lowly regarded, but he is aware of the arrogant from afar.
7 Though I walk straight into trouble, you preserve my life, stretching out your hand to fight the vehemence of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me. 8 The LORD will complete what his purpose is for me. LORD, your gracious love is eternal; do not abandon your personal work in me. To the Music Director: A Davidic Song
1 LORD, you have examined me; you have known me.
