Psalm 138

Psalm 138

Of David.

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
    before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
    and will praise your name
    for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
    that it surpasses your fame.
When I called, you answered me;
    you greatly emboldened me.

May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord,
    when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
    for the glory of the Lord is great.

Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
    though lofty, he sees them from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
    you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
    with your right hand you save me.
The Lord will vindicate me;
    your love, Lord, endures forever—
    do not abandon the works of your hands.

詩篇 138

感恩的禱告

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,
我全心全意地稱謝你,
在眾神明面前歌頌你。
我要向你的聖殿下拜,
稱謝你的名,
因為你是慈愛信實的,
你顯明自己的尊名和應許偉大無比。
我禱告的時候,你就應允我;
你使我剛強壯膽。

耶和華啊,世上所有的君王聽見你的話都要稱謝你。
他們要歌唱耶和華的作為,
因為耶和華榮耀無比。
耶和華雖在高天之上,
仍看顧卑微的人,
祂對驕傲的人也瞭若指掌。

耶和華啊,雖然我身陷患難,
你必保護我的性命,
伸手攻擊惱怒的仇敵,
用右手拯救我。
耶和華必成就祂為我所定的計劃;
耶和華啊,你的慈愛永遠長存。
求你不要撇棄你親手所造的。
