Psalm 138:6
Context
I Will Give Thanks with My Whole Heart

1I will praise you with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise to you. 2I will worship toward your holy temple, and praise your name for your loving kindness and for your truth: for you have magnified your word above all your name. 3In the day when I cried you answered me, and strengthened me with strength in my soul. 4All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth. 5Yes, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD. 6Though the LORD be high, yet has he respect to the lowly: but the proud he knows afar off. 7Though I walk in the middle of trouble, you will revive me: you shall stretch forth your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand shall save me. 8The LORD will perfect that which concerns me: your mercy, O LORD, endures for ever: forsake not the works of your own hands.
