1 “By David.” I will praise thee with my whole heart: before [thee], O God, will I sing praise unto thee.
2 I will bow myself down before thy holy temple, and I will thank thy name for thy kindness and for thy truth; for thou hast magnified above all thy name thy promise.
3 On the day when I called didst thou answer me, and raise me up with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, when they hear the promises of thy mouth.
5 And they will sing on the ways of the Lord; for great is the glory of the Lord.
6 For exalted is the Lord, yet doth he regard the lowly; but the proud he punisheth from afar.
7 If I should walk in the midst of distress, thou wilt revive me: against the wrath of my enemies wilt thou stretch forth thy hand, and thy right hand will save me.
8 The Lord will accomplish [all] in my behalf; O Lord, thy kindness endureth for ever: the works of thy own hands do not abandon.
