138 bI give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before cthe gods I sing your praise;
your name and your word.1
my strength of soul you increased.2
4 fAll the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
5 and they shall sing of gthe ways of the Lord,
6 hFor though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
7 iThough I walk in the midst of trouble,
you jpreserve my life;
you kstretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your lright hand delivers me.
8 The Lord will mfulfill his purpose for me;
nyour steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake othe work of your hands.
