Psalm 137 (Mid-hour of Ninth Hour)
(Psalm 138 – Hebrew Numbering)
I will confess Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; and before angels will I chant unto Thee, for Thou hast heard all the words of my mouth.
I will worship towards Thy holy temple and confess Thy name, for Thy mercy and for Thy truth; for Thou hast magnified Thy holy name above all that is.
In whatsoever day I call upon Thee, quickly hearken unto me; Thou shalt abundantly endow my soul with Thy strength.
Let all the kings of the earth, O Lord, confess Thee, for they have heard all the words of Thy mouth.
And let them sing in the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.
For the Lord is exalted, yet on lowly things He looketh; and things haughty He knoweth from afar.
Though I should walk in the midst of affliction, Thou shalt quicken me; against the wrath of mine enemies hast Thou stretched forth Thy hands, and Thy right hand hath saved me.
The Lord shall give recompense in my behalf.
O Lord, Thy mercy endureth for ever; disdain not the work of Thy hands.
