Psalm 138 - Douay-Rheims version of The Bible - 1752 version

The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful

1. For David himself. I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: for thou hast heard the words of my mouth. I will sing praise to thee in the sight of the angels:

2. I will worship towards thy holy temple, and I will give glory to thy name. For thy mercy, and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy holy name above all.

3. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me: thou shalt multiply strength in my soul.

4. May all the kings of the earth give glory to thee: for they have heard all the words of thy mouth.

5. And let them sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.

6. For the Lord is high, and looketh on the low: and the high he knoweth afar off.

7. If I shall walk in the midst of tribulation, thou wilt quicken me: and thou hast stretched forth thy hand against the wrath of my enemies: and thy right hand hath saved me.

8. The Lord will repay for me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: O despise not the works of thy hands.
