PSALM 118
1Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever. 2Oh let Israel say, that his loving-kindness endureth for ever. 3Oh let the house of Aaron say, that his loving-kindness endureth for ever. 4Oh let them that fear Jehovah say, that his loving-kindness endureth for ever. 5I called upon Jah in distress; Jah answered me and set me in a large place. 6Jehovah is for me, I will not fear; what can man do unto me? 7Jehovah is for me among them that help me; and I shall see my desire upon them that hate me. 8It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in man; 9It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in nobles. 10All nations encompassed me; but in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them. 11They encompassed me, yea, encompassed me; but in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them. 12They encompassed me like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them. 13Thou hast thrust hard at me that I might fall; but Jehovah helped me. 14My strength and song is Jah, and he is become my salvation. 15The voice of triumph and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: the right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly; 16The right hand of Jehovah is exalted, the right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly. 17I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of Jah. 18Jah hath chastened me sore; but he hath not given me over unto death.
19Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will enter into them; Jah will I praise. 20This is the gate of Jehovah: the righteous shall enter therein. 21I will give thee thanks, for thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation. 22The stone which the builders rejected hath become the head of the corner: 23This is of Jehovah; it is wonderful in our eyes. 24This is the day that Jehovah hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. 25Oh save, Jehovah, I beseech thee; Jehovah, I beseech thee, oh send prosperity! 26Blessed be he that cometh in the name of Jehovah. We have blessed you out of the house of Jehovah. 27Jehovah is ·God#GodHebrew: El and he hath given us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, --up to the horns of the altar. 28Thou art my ·God#GodHebrew: El and I will give thee thanks; my God#GodHebrew: Elohim I will exalt thee. 29Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever.
