1381I thank you, LORD, with all my heart;
I sing praise to you before the gods.
2I face your holy Temple,
bow down, and praise your name
because of your constant love and faithfulness,
because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.138.2 Probable text your name and your commands are supreme; Hebrew your command is greater than all your name.
3You answered me when I called to you;
with your strength you strengthened me.
4All the kings in the world will praise you, LORD,
because they have heard your promises.
5They will sing about what you have done
and about your great glory.
6Even though you are so high above,
you care for the lowly,
and the proud cannot hide from you.
7When I am surrounded by troubles,
you keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
and save me by your power.
8You will do everything you have promised;
LORD, your love is eternal.
Complete the work that you have begun.
