Psalms 118

Give thanks to the  Lord, for he is good,
for his loving kindness endures forever.
Let Israel now say
that his loving kindness endures forever.
Let the house of Aaron now say
that his loving kindness endures forever.
Now let those who fear the  Lord say
that his loving kindness endures forever.
Out of my distress, I called on Yah.
Yah answered me with freedom.
The  Lord is on my side. I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
Hebrews 13:6

The  Lord is on my side among those who help me.
Therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
It is better to take refuge in the  Lord,
than to put confidence in man.
It is better to take refuge in the  Lord,
than to put confidence in princes.
10 All the nations surrounded me,
but in the name of the  Lord, I cut them off.
11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me.
In the name of the  Lord I indeed cut them off.
12 They surrounded me like bees.
They are quenched like the burning thorns.
In the name of the  Lord I cut them off.
13 You pushed me back hard, to make me fall,
but the  Lord helped me.
14 Yah is my strength and song.
He has become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous.
"The right hand of the  Lord does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the  Lord is exalted!
The right hand of the  Lord does valiantly!"
17 I will not die, but live,
and declare the works of Yah.
18 Yah has punished me severely,
but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness.
I will enter into them.
I will give thanks to Yah.
20 This is the gate of the  Lord;
the righteous will enter into it.
21 I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me,
and have become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1Peter 2:7. Possible Hebrew word-play between "the stone" (h'bn) and "the son" (hbn)

23 This is the  Lord's doing.
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day that the  Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it!
25 Save us now, we beg you,  Lord!
 Lord, we beg you, send prosperity now.
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the  Lord!
Matthew 21:9; Mark 11:9; Luke 13:35; 19:38; John 12:13

We have blessed you out of the house of the  Lord.
27 The  Lord is God, and he has given us light.
Bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar.
28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you.
You are my God, I will exalt you.
29 Oh give thanks to the  Lord, for he is good,
for his loving kindness endures forever.
