PSALM 118

Thanksgiving for the Lord’s Saving Goodness.

1 aGive thanks to the Lord, for bHe is good;

For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

2 Oh let aIsrael say,

“His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

3 Oh let the ahouse of Aaron say,

“His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

4 Oh let those awho 1fear the Lord say,

“His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

5 From my adistress I called upon 1the Lord;

1The Lord answered me and bset me in a large place.

6 The Lord is afor me; I will bnot fear;

cWhat can man do to me?

7 The Lord is for me aamong those who help me;

Therefore I will blook with satisfaction on those who hate me.

8 It is abetter to take refuge in the Lord

Than to trust in man.

9 It is abetter to take refuge in the Lord

Than to trust in princes.

10 All nations asurrounded me;

In the name of the Lord I will surely bcut them off.

11 They asurrounded me, yes, they surrounded me;

In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.

12 They surrounded me alike bees;

They were extinguished as a bfire of thorns;

In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.

13 You apushed me violently so that I 1was falling,

But the Lord bhelped me.

14 1aThe Lord is my strength and song,

And He has become bmy salvation.

15 The sound of ajoyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;

The bright hand of the Lord does valiantly.

16 The aright hand of the Lord is exalted;

The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.

17 I awill not die, but live,

And btell of the works of 1the Lord.

18 1The Lord has adisciplined me severely,

But He has bnot given me over to death.

19 aOpen to me the gates of righteousness;

I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to 1the Lord.

20 This is the gate of the Lord;

The arighteous will enter through it.

21 I shall give thanks to You, for You have aanswered me,

And You have bbecome my salvation.

22 The astone which the builders rejected

Has become the chief corner stone.

23 This is 1the Lord’s doing;

It is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day which the Lord has made;

Let us arejoice and be glad in it.

25 O Lord, ado save, we beseech You;

O Lord, we beseech You, do send bprosperity!

26 aBlessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord;

We have bblessed you from the house of the Lord.

27 aThe Lord is God, and He has given us blight;

Bind the festival sacrifice with cords 1to the chorns of the altar.

28 aYou are my God, and I give thanks to You;

You are my God, bI extol You.

29 aGive thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
