Psalms 117

1Alleluia. Confess to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy is forever. 2Let Israel now say: For he is good, for his mercy is forever. 3Let the house of Aaron now say: For his mercy is forever. 4Let those who fear the Lord now say: For his mercy is forever. 5In my tribulation, I called upon the Lord. And the Lord heeded me with generosity. 6The Lord is my helper. I will not fear what man can do to me. 7The Lord is my helper. And I will look down upon my enemies. 8It is good to trust in the Lord, rather than to trust in man. 9It is good to hope in the Lord, rather than to hope in leaders. 10All the nations have surrounded me. And, in the name of the Lord, I have been avenged over them. 11Surrounding me, they closed in on me. And, in the name of the Lord, I have been avenged over them. 12They surrounded me like a swarm, and they burned like fire among the thorns. And, in the name of the Lord, I have been avenged over them. 13Having been pushed, I was overturned so as to fall. But the Lord took me up. 14The Lord is my strength and my praise. And he has become my salvation. 15A voice of exultation and salvation is in the tabernacles of the just. 16The right hand of the Lord has wrought virtue. The right hand of the Lord has exalted me. The right hand of the Lord has wrought virtue. 17I will not die, but I will live. And I will declare the works of the Lord. 18When chastising, the Lord chastised me. But he has not delivered me over to death. 19Open the gates of justice to me. I will enter them, and I will confess to the Lord. 20This is the gate of the Lord. The just will enter by it. 21I will confess to you because you have heard me. And you have become my salvation. 22The stone which the builders have rejected, this has become the head of the corner. 23By the Lord has this been done, and it is a wonder before our eyes. 24This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us exult and rejoice in it. 25O Lord, grant salvation to me. O Lord, grant good prosperity. 26Blessed is he who arrives in the name of the Lord. We have blessed you from the house of the Lord. 27The Lord is God, and he has enlightened us. Establish a solemn day amid a dense crowd, even to the horn of the altar. 28You are my God, and I will confess to you. You are my God, and I will exalt you. I will confess to you, for you have heeded me. And you have become my salvation. 29Confess to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy is forever.
