Psalm 138 - New International Reader's Version

The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful

1. A psalm of David. LORD, I will praise you with all my heart. In front of those who think they are gods I will sing praise to you.

2. I will bow down facing your holy temple. I will praise your name, because you are loving and faithful. You have honored your name and your word more than anything else.

3. When I called out to you, you answered me. You made me strong and brave.

4. LORD, may all of the kings on earth praise you when they hear about what you have promised.

5. LORD, may they sing about what you have done, because your glory is great.

6. The LORD is in heaven. But he watches over those who are free of pride. He knows those who are proud and stays far away from them.

7. Trouble is all around me, but you keep me alive. You reach out your hand to put a stop to the anger of my enemies. With your powerful right hand you save me.

8. LORD, you will do everything you have planned for me. LORD, your faithful love continues forever. You have done so much for us. Don't stop now.
