I am so thankful that His loving kindness, His mercy, endures forever!

Psalm 136

1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his loving kindness endures forever. 2 Give thanks to the God of gods; for his loving kindness endures forever. 3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords; for his loving kindness endures forever: 4 to him who alone does great wonders; for his loving kindness endures forever: 5 to him who by understanding made the heavens; for his loving kindness endures forever: 6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters; for his loving kindness endures forever: 7 to him who made the great lights; for his loving kindness endures forever: 8 the sun to rule by day; for his loving kindness endures forever; 9 the moon and stars to rule by night; for his loving kindness endures forever: 10 to him who struck down the Egyptian firstborn; for his loving kindness endures forever; 11 and brought out Israel from amongst them; for his loving kindness endures forever; 12 with a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm; for his loving kindness endures forever: 13 to him who divided the Red Sea apart; for his loving kindness endures forever; 14 and made Israel to pass through the middle of it; for his loving kindness endures forever; 15 but overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea; for his loving kindness endures forever: 16 to him who led his people through the wilderness; for his loving kindness endures forever: 17 to him who struck great kings; for his loving kindness endures forever; 18 and killed mighty kings; for his loving kindness endures forever: 19 Sihon king of the Amorites; for his loving kindness endures forever; 20 Og king of Bashan; for his loving kindness endures forever; 21 and gave their land as an inheritance; for his loving kindness endures forever; 22 even a heritage to Israel his servant; for his loving kindness endures forever: 23 who remembered us in our low estate; for his loving kindness endures forever; 24 and has delivered us from our adversaries; for his loving kindness endures forever: 25 who gives food to every creature; for his loving kindness endures forever. 26 Oh give thanks to the God of heaven; for his loving kindness endures forever.

Psalm 137 records the mourning of the Israelites in captivity.

Psalm 137

1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down. Yes, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2 On the willows in that land, we hung up our harps. 3 For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs. Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy: “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” 4 How can we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land? 5 If I forget you, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill. 6 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I don’t remember you; if I don’t prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy. 7 Remember, LORD, against the children of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, “Raze it! Raze it even to its foundation!” 8 Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, he will be happy who rewards you, as you have served us. 9 Happy shall he be, who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock.

Matthew 22:37 – Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

Psalm 138

By David.
1 I will give you thanks with my whole heart. Before the gods, I will sing praises to you. 2 I will bow down towards your holy temple, and give thanks to your Name for your loving kindness and for your truth; for you have exalted your Name and your Word above all. 3 In the day that I called, you answered me. You encouraged me with strength in my soul. 4 All the kings of the earth will give you thanks, LORD, for they have heard the words of your mouth. 5 Yes, they will sing of the ways of the LORD; for great is the LORD’s glory. 6 For though the LORD is high, yet he looks after the lowly; but the proud, he knows from afar. 7 Though I walk in the middle of trouble, you will revive me. You will stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies. Your right hand will save me. 8 The LORD will fulfill that which concerns me; your loving kindness, LORD, endures forever. Don’t forsake the works of your own hands.
