Psalm 118:1-29

118  Give thanks to Jehovah, because he is good,because his friendship lasts forever. 2  Let Israel saythat his friendship lasts forever. 3  Let Aaron’s family saythat his friendship lasts forever. 4  Let those who fear Jehovah saythat his friendship lasts forever. 5  I called to Jehovah out of a tight pinch,Jehovah answered me in free range. 6  I have Jehovah for me; I will not be afraid;what is man to do to me? 7  I have Jehovah for me among my helpers,and I shall gloat over my haters. 8  Better to take refuge in Jehovahthan to put confidence in man. 9  Better to take refuge in Jehovahthan to put confidence in princes. 10  All nations have surrounded me—in Jehovah’s name I will stand them off. 11  Surrounded me they have, yes, surrounded me—in Jehovah’s name I will stand them off. 12  They have surrounded me like bees—they have gone out like a thorn fire,in Jehovah’s name I will stand them off. 13  You did give me a push to bring me down,but Jehovah helped me. 14  My strength and hymn is Jehovah,and he has been to me salvation; 15  In honest men’s tents there is a voice of shouting and victory:Jehovah’s right hand has done sturdily! 16  Jehovah’s right hand was swung high!Jehovah’s right hand did sturdily! 17  I shall not die but liveand tell the story of Jehovah’s deeds; 18  Jehovah did chastise me,but did not give me up to death. 19  Open holy gates for meto go in by them, to praise Jehovah. 20  This gate is Jehovah’s;right-doers shall go in by it. 21  I thank you that you have answered meand been to me salvation; 22  A stone that the builders had rejectedhas become the head of a corner. 23  This was from Jehovah,it is a wonder to our eyes. 24  This day Jehovah has made;we will exult and make merry on it. 25  Ah, Jehovah, give victory!ah, Jehovah, give success! 26  Blessed in Jehovah’s name be he who is coming in;we bless you out of Jehovah’s house. 27  Jehovah is Deityand has given us light.Tie festival with cordsclear to the horns of the altar. 28  You are my Deity whom I thank,my God whom I exalt. 29  Give thanks to Jehovah because he is good,because his friendship lasts forever.
