Psalms 118

Alleluia. Give thanks to the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever. Let now the house of Israel say that He is good; for His mercy endures forever. Let now the house of Aaron say that He is good; for His mercy endures forever. Let now all that fear the Lord say that He is good; for His mercy endures forever. I called on the Lord out of affliction; and He hearkened to me, and brought me into a wide place. The Lord is my helper; and I will not fear, what shall man do to me? The Lord is my helper; and I shall see my desire upon my enemies. It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to hope in the Lord, than to hope in princes. 10 All the nations surrounded me; but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 11 They completely compassed me about; but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 12 They compassed me about as bees do a honeycomb, and they burst into flame as fire among thorns; but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 13 I was thrust, and sorely shaken, that I might fall; but the Lord helped me. 14 The Lord is my strength and my song, and has become my salvation. 15 The voice of exaltation and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous; the right hand of the Lord has done mightily. 16 The right hand of the Lord has exalted me; the right hand of the Lord has done powerfully. 17 I shall not die, but live, and recount the works of the Lord. 18 The Lord has chastened me sore; but He has not given me up to death. 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go into them, and give praise to the Lord. 20 This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter by it. 21 I will give thanks to You; because You have heard me, and have become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. 23 This was the Lord's doing; and it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us exalt and rejoice in it. 25 O Lord, save now; O Lord, send now prosperity. 26 Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord; we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. 27 God is the Lord, and He has shined upon us; celebrate the feast with thick branches, binding the victims even to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will give You thanks; You are my God, and I will exalt You. I will give thanks to You, for You have heard me, and have become my salvation. 29 Give thanks to the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever!
