Ps 138:1
138:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> I will praise thee with my whole
      heart: before the {a} gods will I sing praise unto thee.

      (a) Even in the presence of angels and of them who have
          authority among men.

Ps 138:2
138:2 I will worship toward thy holy {b} temple, and praise thy
      name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou
      hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

      (b) Both the temple and ceremonial service at Christ's
          coming were abolished: so that now God will be
          worshipped only in spirit and truth, @Joh 4:23.

Ps 138:3
138:3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, [and] {c}
      strengthenedst me [with] strength in my soul.

      (c) You have strengthened me against my outward and inward

Ps 138:4
138:4 All the {d} kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD,
      when they hear the words of thy mouth.

      (d) All the world will confess that you have wonderfully
          preserved me, and performed your promise.

Ps 138:6
138:6 Though the LORD [be] high, yet hath he respect unto the
      lowly: but the proud he knoweth {e} afar off.

      (e) Distance of place cannot hinder God to show mercy to
          his, and so judge the wicked though they think that he
          is far off.

Ps 138:8
138:8 The LORD will {f} perfect [that which] concerneth me: thy
      mercy, O LORD, [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works
      of thine own hands.

      (f) Though my enemies rage, yet the Lord, who has begun
          his work in me, will continue his grace to the end.
