I think the answer to yesterday's question is adoration.

The obvious part of Psalm 138-2 is the full focus of the psalmist on the Lord - you, your, you,... 'you' is repeated 7 times in that one verse. This construct is relatively frequent:
1060/16419 phrases or
1169/19548 words (6%) in the psalms end with 'ka' meaning 'your'.
13/56 in this psalm for 25%.

I think we can say this is adoration.

The word GDL - usually translated magnify - is frequently used in the Psalms.

So the Lord magnifies by his full name his word.
