PSALMS OF PRAYERS AND PRAISES
New Living Translation

 

Psalms 138




I give you thanks, O LORD, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods.

I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I will give thanks to your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness, because your promises are backed by all the honor of your name.

When I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me the strength I need.

Every king in all the earth will give you thanks, O L
ORD, for all of them will hear your words.

Yes, they will sing about the L
ordís ways, for the glory of the LORD is very great.

Though the L
ORD is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will preserve me against the anger of my enemies.
You will clench your fist against my angry enemies! Your power will save me.

The L
ORD will work out his plans for my life--for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever.
Donít abandon me, for you made me.
