Psalms 118

Thanksgiving for the  Lord’s Saving Goodness.

a Give thanks to the  Lord, for b He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Oh let c Israel say,
His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
Oh let the d house of Aaron say,
His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
Oh let those e who
Or revere
fear the  Lord say,
His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

From my g distress I called upon
Heb  Yah
the  Lord;
Heb  Yah
The  Lord answered me and j  set me in a large place.
The  Lord is k for me; I will l not fear;
m What can man do to me?
The  Lord is for me n among those who help me;
Therefore I will o look with satisfaction on those who hate me.
It is p better to take refuge in the  Lord
Than to trust in man.
It is q better to take refuge in the  Lord
Than to trust in princes.

10 All nations r surrounded me;
In the name of the  Lord I will surely s cut them off.
11 They t surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me;
In the name of the  Lord I will surely cut them off.
12 They surrounded me u like bees;
They were extinguished as a v fire of thorns;
In the name of the  Lord I will surely cut them off.
13 You w pushed me violently so that I
Or fell
was falling,
But the  Lord y helped me.
14 
Heb  Yah
,
aa The  Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become ab my salvation.

15 The sound of ac joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
The ad right hand of the  Lord does valiantly.
16 The ae right hand of the  Lord is exalted;
The right hand of the  Lord does valiantly.
17 I af will not die, but live,
And ag tell of the works of
Heb  Yah
the  Lord.
18 
Heb  Yah
The  Lord has aj disciplined me severely,
But He has ak not given me over to death.

19  al Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to
Heb  Yah
the  Lord.
20 This is the gate of the  Lord;
The an righteous will enter through it.
21 I shall give thanks to You, for You have ao answered me,
And You have ap become my salvation.

22 The aq stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
23 This is
Lit from the  Lord
the  Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the  Lord has made;
Let us as rejoice and be glad in it.
25 O  Lord at do save, we beseech You;
O  Lord, we beseech You, do send au prosperity!
26  av Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the  Lord;
We have aw blessed you from the house of the  Lord.
27  ax The  Lord is God, and He has given us ay light;
Bind the festival sacrifice with cords
Lit unto
to the ba horns of the altar.
28  bb You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
You are my God bc I extol You.
29  bd Give thanks to the  Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
