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.

诗篇 138

感恩的祷告

大卫的诗。

1耶和华啊,
我全心全意地称谢你,
在众神明面前歌颂你。
我要向你的圣殿下拜,
称谢你的名,
因为你是慈爱信实的,
你显明自己的尊名和应许伟大无比。
我祷告的时候,你就应允我;
你使我刚强壮胆。

耶和华啊,世上所有的君王听见你的话都要称谢你。
他们要歌唱耶和华的作为,
因为耶和华荣耀无比。
耶和华虽在高天之上,
仍看顾卑微的人,
祂对骄傲的人也了如指掌。

耶和华啊,虽然我身陷患难,
你必保护我的性命,
伸手攻击恼怒的仇敌,
用右手拯救我。
耶和华必成就祂为我所定的计划;
耶和华啊,你的慈爱永远长存。
求你不要撇弃你亲手所造的。
