118
1O give thanks unto Hashem; for He is tov; Ki l'olam chasdo (for His mercy endureth forever). 2Let Yisroel now say, Ki l'olam chasdo. 3Let the Bais Aharon now say, Ki l'olam chasdo. 4Let them now that fear Hashem say, Ki l'olam chasdo, 5I called upon Hashem in distress; Hashem answered me, and set me in a broad place. 6Hashem is on my side; I will not fear; what can adam do unto me? 7Hashem taketh my part through them that help me; therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. 8It is better to trust in Hashem than to put confidence in adam. 9It is better to trust in Hashem than to put confidence in nedivim (nobles). 10All Goyim surrounded me; but in the Shem Hashem will I cut them off. 11They surrounded me; yes, they compassed me about; but in the Shem Hashem I will cut them off. 12They compassed me about like devorim (bees); they are extinguished like the eish of kotzim (thorns); for in the Shem Hashem I will cut them off. 13Thou hast hard pushed at me that I fell; but Hashem helped me. 14Hashem is my oz (strength) and zimrah (song), and He is become my Yeshuah (salvation). 15The voice of rejoicing and Yeshuah (salvation) is in the ohalim of the tzaddikim; the Yamin Hashem doeth valiantly. 16The Yamin Hashem is exalted; the Yamin Hashem doeth valiantly. 17I shall not die, but live, and declare the ma'asim (works) of Hashem. 18Hashem hath hard chastened me severely; but He hath not given me over unto mavet (death). 19Open to me the sha'arei tzedek; I will go through them, and I will praise Hashem; 20This is the sha'ar of Hashem, into which the tzaddikim shall enter. 21I will praise Thee; for Thou hast heard me, and art become my Yeshuah (salvation). 22The Even (Stone) which the Bonim (Builders) rejected [mem-alef-samech, see same word Psalm 89:38 (39)] has become the Rosh Pinnah (Cornerstone). 23This is Hashem's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. 24This is the yom which Hashem hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. 25Save now, we beseech Thee, Hashem; Hashem, we beseech thee, send now prosperity. 26Baruch habah b'Shem Hashem; we have blessed you from the Beis Hashem. 27Hashem is G-d, Who hath showed us light; bind the chag (festival offering) with cords, even until [you come to] the karnot of the Mizbe'ach. 28Thou art my G-d, and I will praise Thee; Thou art Elohai, I will exalt Thee. 29O give thanks unto Hashem; for He is tov; ki l'olam chasdo (for His mercy endureth forever). [T.N. A ma'amin b'Moshiach will carry Scripture with him at all times, as the following Psalm teaches.]
