Psalm 118
118:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good
and his loyal love endures!
118:2 Let Israel say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
118:3 Let the family of Aaron say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
118:4 Let the loyal followers of the LORD say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
118:5 In my distress I cried out to the LORD.
The LORD answered me and put me in a wide open place.
118:6 The LORD is on my side, I am not afraid!
What can people do to me?
118:7 The LORD is on my side as my helper.
I look in triumph on those who hate me.
118:8 It is better to take shelter in the LORD
than to trust in people.
118:9 It is better to take shelter in the LORD
than to trust in princes.
118:10 All the nations surrounded me.
Indeed, in the name of the LORD I pushed them away.
118:11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me.
Indeed, in the name of the LORD I pushed them away.
118:12 They surrounded me like bees.
But they disappeared as quickly as a fire among thorns.
Indeed, in the name of the LORD I pushed them away.
118:13 “You aggressively attacked me and tried to knock me down,
but the LORD helped me.
118:14 The LORD gives me strength and protects me;
he has become my deliverer.”
118:15 They celebrate deliverance in the tents of the godly.
The LORD’s right hand conquers,
118:16 the LORD’s right hand gives victory,
the LORD’s right hand conquers.
118:17 I will not die, but live,
and I will proclaim what the LORD has done.
118:18 The LORD severely punished me,
but he did not hand me over to death.
118:19 Open for me the gates of the just king’s temple!
I will enter through them and give thanks to the LORD.
118:20 This is the LORD’s gate –
the godly enter through it.
118:21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me,
and have become my deliverer.
118:22 The stone which the builders discarded
has become the cornerstone.
118:23 This is the LORD’s work.
We consider it amazing!
118:24 This is the day the LORD has brought about.
We will be happy and rejoice in it.
118:25 Please LORD, deliver!
Please LORD, grant us success!
118:26 May the one who comes in the name of the LORD be blessed!
We will pronounce blessings on you in the LORD’s temple.
118:27 The LORD is God and he has delivered us.
Tie the offering with ropes
to the horns of the altar!
118:28 You are my God and I will give you thanks!
You are my God and I will praise you!
118:29 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good
and his loyal love endures!
