OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

    • ‘You answered my prayer’ (3)

    • ‘Even amid danger, you rescue me’ (7)

Of David. 138  I will praise you with all my heart.+ In the face of other gods,I will sing praises.*   I will bow down toward your holy temple,*+And I will praise your name+Because of your loyal love and your faithfulness. For you have magnified your saying and your name above everything else.*   On the day I called, you answered me;+You made me bold* and strong.+   All the kings of the earth will praise you, O Jehovah,+For they will have heard the promises you have spoken.   They will sing about the ways of Jehovah,For the glory of Jehovah is great.+   Though Jehovah is high, he takes note of the humble,+But the haughty he knows only from a distance.+   Even when I walk in the midst of danger, you will preserve me alive.+ You stretch out your hand against the anger of my enemies;Your right hand will save me.   Jehovah will accomplish all things in my behalf. O Jehovah, your loyal love endures forever;+Do not forsake the works of your hands.+
