Psalm 118:1–29

Praise to God for His Everlasting Mercy

1 Oh, agive thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

bFor His mercy endures forever.

2 cLet Israel now say,

“His mercy endures forever.”

3 Let the house of Aaron now say,

“His mercy endures forever.”

4 Let those who fear the Lord now say,

“His mercy endures forever.”

5 dI called on the Lord in distress;

The Lord answered me and eset me in a broad place.

6 fThe Lord is on my side;

I will not fear.

What can man do to me?

7 gThe Lord is for me among those who help me;

Therefore hI shall see my desire on those who hate me.

8 iIt is better to trust in the Lord

Than to put confidence in man.

9 jIt is better to trust in the Lord

Than to put confidence in princes.

10 All nations surrounded me,

But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

11 They ksurrounded me,

Yes, they surrounded me;

But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

12 They surrounded me llike bees;

They were quenched mlike a fire of thorns;

For in the name of the Lord I will 1destroy them.

13 You pushed me violently, that I might fall,

But the Lord helped me.

14 nThe Lord is my strength and song,

And 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 oThe right hand of the Lord is exalted;

The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.

17 pI shall not die, but live,

And qdeclare the works of the Lord.

18 The Lord has rchastened 2me severely,

But He has not given me over to death.

19 sOpen to me the gates of righteousness;

I will go through them,

And I will praise the Lord.

20 tThis is the gate of the Lord,

uThrough which the righteous shall enter.

21 I will praise You,

For You have vanswered me,

And have become my salvation.

22 wThe stone which the builders rejected

Has become the chief cornerstone.

23 3This was the Lord’s doing;

It is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day the Lord has made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;

O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.

26 xBlessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.

27 God is the Lord,

And He has given us ylight;

Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will praise You;

zYou are my God, I will exalt You.

29 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.
