A PSALM OF DAVID.
  1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
  2 I will aworship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
  3 In the day when I acried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
  4 All the akings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
  5 Yea, they shall asing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.
  6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
  7 Though I walk in the midst of atrouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
  8 aThe Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the bworks of thine own hands.
