Psalm 138 - American Standard Version 2015

The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful

1. {\b {\i A Psalm} of David.}\par\par\tab I will give thee thanks with my whole heart:\par\tab Before the gods will I sing praises unto thee.

2. I will worship toward thy holy temple,\par\tab And give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:\par\tab For thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

3. In the day that I called thou answeredst me,\par\tab Thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul.

4. All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O Jehovah,\par\tab For they have heard the words of thy mouth.

5. Yea, they shall sing of the ways of Jehovah;\par\tab For great is the glory of Jehovah.

6. For though Jehovah is high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly;\par\tab But the haughty he knoweth from afar.

7. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me;\par\tab Thou wilt stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of mine enemies,\par\tab And thy right hand will save me.

8. Jehovah will perfect that which concerneth me:\par\tab Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, {\i endureth} for ever;\par\tab Forsake not the works of thine own hands.
