1 # 1 Ch 16.342 Ch 5.132 Ch 7.3Ezra 3.11Ps 100.5Ps 106.1Ps 107.1Ps 136.1Jr 33.11 Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,
and his love is eternal.
2Let the people of Israel say,
“His love is eternal.”
3Let the priests of God say,
“His love is eternal.”
4Let all who worship him say,
“His love is eternal.”
5In my distress I called to the Lord;
he answered me and set me free.
6 # He 13.6 The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid;
what can anyone do to me?
7It is the Lord who helps me,
and I will see my enemies defeated.
8It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on people.
9It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on human leaders.
10Many enemies were around me;
but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!
11They were around me on every side;
but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!
12They swarmed around me like bees,
but they burned out as quickly as a brush fire;
by the power of the Lord I destroyed them.
13I was fiercely attacked and was being defeated,
but the Lord helped me.
14 # Ex 15.2Is 12.2 The Lord makes me powerful and strong;
he has saved me.
15Listen to the glad shouts of victory in the tents of God's people:
“The Lord's mighty power has done it!
16His power has brought us victory—
his mighty power in battle!”
17I will not die; instead, I will live
and proclaim what the Lord has done.
18He has punished me severely,
but he has not let me die.
19Open to me the gates of the Temple;
I will go in and give thanks to the Lord!
20This is the gate of the Lord;
only the righteous can come in.
21I praise you, Lord, because you heard me,
because you have given me victory.

turned out to be the most important of all.
23This was done by the Lord;
what a wonderful sight it is!
24This is the day of the Lord's victory;
let us be happy, let us celebrate!
25 # Mt 21.9Mk 11.9Jn 12.13 Save us, Lord, save us!
Give us success, O Lord!

27The Lord is God; he has been good to us.
With branches in your hands, start the festival
and march around the altar.
28You are my God, and I give you thanks;
I will proclaim your greatness.
29Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,
and his love is eternal.
