118
1Oh, give thanks to יהוה, for He is good! Because His kindness is everlasting.
2Let Yisra’ĕl now say, “His kindness is everlasting.”
3Let the house of Aharon now say, “His kindness is everlasting.”
4Let those who fear יהוה now say, “His kindness is everlasting.”
5I called on Yah in distress; Yah answered me in a broad place.
6יהוה is on my side; I do not fear what man does to me!
7יהוה is for me among those helping me; Therefore I look on those hating me.
8It is better to take refuge in יהוה Than to trust in man.
9It is better to take refuge in יהוה Than to trust in princes.
10All the gentiles surrounded me, In the Name of יהוה I shall cut them off.
11They surrounded me, Yea, they surrounded me; In the Name of יהוה shall I cut them off.
12They surrounded me like bees; They were extinguished like burning thorns; In the Name of יהוה I shall cut them off.
13Pushing, the enemy pushed me to fall, But יהוה helped me.
14Yah is my strength and song, And He has become my deliverance.
15The voice of rejoicing and deliverance Is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of יהוה is doing mightily.
16The right hand of יהוה is exalted, The right hand of יהוה acts mightily.
17Let me not die, but live, And declare the works of Yah.
18Yah has punished me severely, But did not give me over to death.
19Open to me the gates of righteousness; I enter through them, I thank Yah.
20This is the gate of יהוה, The righteous enter through it.
21I thank You, For You have answered me, And have become my deliverance.
22The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner-stone.
23This was from יהוה, It is marvellous in our eyes.
24This is the day יהוה has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25I pray, O יהוה, please save; I pray, O יהוה, please send prosperity.
26Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה!#See Mat. 23:39. We shall bless you from the House of יהוה.
27יהוה is Ěl, and He gave us light; Bind the festal offering With cords to the horns of the altar.
28You are my Ěl, and I praise You; You are my Elohim, I exalt You.
29Give thanks to יהוה, for He is good! For His kindness is everlasting.
