Psalm 138

A psalm of David.
1 I give you thanks, O LORD, with all my heart;
  I will sing your praises before the gods.
2 I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
  I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for your promises are backed
  by all the honor of your name.
3 As soon as I pray, you answer me;
  you encourage me by giving me strength.

4 Every king in all the earth will thank you, LORD,
  for all of them will hear your words.
5 Yes, they will sing about the LORD's ways,
  for the glory of the LORD is very great.
6 Though the LORD is great, he cares for the humble,
  but he keeps his distance from the proud.

7 Though I am surrounded by troubles,
  you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.
You reach out your hand,
  and the power of your right hand saves me.
8 The LORD will work out his plans for my life—
  for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever.
  Don't abandon me, for you made me.

I would say without question, that the accuracy of the New Living Translation and the scholarship that has gone into it has been impressive, and I can trust it.
