A Psalm of David.

1I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods I will sing praises unto thee. 2I will worship the temple of thy holiness and praise thy name above thy mercy and thy truth; for thou hast made thy name to be magnificent and raised up thy spoken word above all things. 3In the day when I called, thou didst answer me and strengthen me with strength in my soul. 4All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hearken unto the spoken words from thy mouth. 5Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.

6For the LORD, who is high and lifted up, looks upon the humble, but the proud he does not know. 7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; thou shalt stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. 8The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; thy mercy, O LORD, endures for ever; forsake not the works of thine own hands.
