Psalm of David
1 I will adore you with all my heart. I will make music to praise you in front of the false gods.
2 I will bow toward your holy temple. I will praise your name because of your loving kindness and truth. You have made your name and your covenant greater than everything.
3 When I called, you answered me. You made me bold. You strengthened me.
4 All the kings of the earth will praise you, O Jehovah, because they have heard the words you spoke.
5 They will sing this about the ways of Jehovah: Jehovahs honor is great!
6 Even though Jehovah is high above, he sees humble people close up, and he recognizes arrogant people from a distance.
7 Even though I walk into the middle of trouble, you guard my life against the anger of my enemies. You stretch out your hand, and your right hand saves me.
8 Jehovah will do everything for me. O Jehovah, your mercy endures forever. Do not let go of what your hands have made.
