Tehillah 138 – תהלה קלח

1By David. I will give You thanks with my whole heart, in the presence of the mighty will I sing praises unto You.

2I will bow down toward Your Heikhal Kadosh, and give thanks unto Your Name, for Your compassion and for Your truth; for You have magnified above all Your Name and Your Word.

3In the day that I called, You did answer me; You did encourage me in my soul with strength.

4All the kings of the earth shall give You thanks, O  יהוה , for they have heard the words of Your mouth.

5Yes, they shall sing of the ways of  יהוה ; for great is the Kavod  יהוה .

6For though  יהוה  is exalted, yet He regards the lowly, and the haughty He knows from afar.

7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You quicken me; You stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand does save me.

8 יהוה  will accomplish that which concerns me; Your compassion, O  יהוה , endures forever; forsake not the work of Your own hands.

אלְדָוִד: אוֹדְךָ בְכָל לִבִּי; נֶגֶד אֱלֹהִים אֲזַמְּרֶךָּ.

באֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ וְאוֹדֶה אֶת שְׁמֶךָ עַל חַסְדְּךָ וְעַל אֲמִתֶּךָ: כִּי הִגְדַּלְתָּ עַל כָּל שִׁמְךָ אִמְרָתֶךָ.

גבְּיוֹם קָרָאתִי וַתַּעֲנֵנִי; תַּרְהִבֵנִי בְנַפְשִׁי עֹז.

דיוֹדוּךָ יהוה כָּל מַלְכֵי אָרֶץ: כִּי שָׁמְעוּ אִמְרֵי פִיךָ.

הוְיָשִׁירוּ בְּדַרְכֵי יהוה : כִּי גָדוֹל כְּבוֹד יהוה .

וכִּי רָם יהוה וְשָׁפָל יִרְאֶה; וְגָבֹהַּ מִמֶּרְחָק יְיֵדָע.

זאִם אֵלֵךְ בְּקֶרֶב צָרָה תְּחַיֵּנִי: עַל אַף אֹיְבַי תִּשְׁלַח יָדֶךָ; וְתוֹשִׁיעֵנִי יְמִינֶךָ.

ח יהוה יִגְמֹר בַּעֲדִי: יהוה חַסְדְּךָ לְעוֹלָם; מַעֲשֵׂי יָדֶיךָ אַל תֶּרֶף.
