Stouthearted

June 20, 2010

This is a favorite Psalm of Chris’ and mine right now. Chris especially likes the word stouthearted.

Psalm 138

 1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
       before the “gods” I will sing your praise.

 2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
       and will praise your name
       for your love and your faithfulness,
       for you have exalted above all things
       your name and your word.

 3 When I called, you answered me;
       you made me bold and stouthearted.

 4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD,
       when they hear the words of your mouth.

 5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD,
       for the glory of the LORD is great.

 6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly,
       but the proud he knows from afar.

 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
       you preserve my life;
       you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes,
       with your right hand you save me.

 8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
       your love, O LORD, endures forever—
       do not abandon the works of your hands.
