Amplified Bible

Psalm 138

Thanksgiving for the Lord’s Favor.

A Psalm of David.

1I will give You thanks with all my heart;
I sing praises to You before the [pagan] gods.

I will bow down [in worship] toward Your holy temple
And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.

On the day I called, You answered me;
And You made me bold and confident with [renewed] strength in my life.

All the kings of the land will give thanks and praise You, O Lord,
When they have heard of the promises of Your mouth [which were fulfilled].

Yes, they will sing of the ways of the Lord [joyfully celebrating His wonderful acts],
For great is the glory and majesty of the Lord.

Though the Lord is exalted,
He regards the lowly [and invites them into His fellowship];
But the proud and haughty He knows from a distance.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.

The Lord will accomplish that which concerns me;
Your [unwavering] lovingkindness, O Lord, endures forever—
Do not abandon the works of Your own hands.

Salmos 138

Salmo de David.

1Señor, quiero alabarte de todo corazón,
    y cantarte salmos delante de los dioses.
Quiero inclinarme hacia tu santo templo
    y alabar tu nombre por tu gran amor y fidelidad.
Porque has exaltado tu nombre y tu palabra
    por encima de todas las cosas.
Cuando te llamé, me respondiste;
    me infundiste ánimo y renovaste mis fuerzas.

Oh Señor, todos los reyes de la tierra
    te alabarán al escuchar tus palabras.
Celebrarán con cánticos tus caminos,
    porque tu gloria, Señor, es grande.

El Señor es excelso,
    pero tiene en cuenta a los humildes
    y mira[a] de lejos a los orgullosos.
Aunque pase yo por grandes angustias,
    tú me darás vida;
contra el furor de mis enemigos extenderás la mano:
    ¡tu mano derecha me pondrá a salvo!
El Señor cumplirá en mí su propósito.[b]
Tu gran amor, Señor, perdura para siempre;
    ¡no abandones la obra de tus manos!
