Psalms 118

Brenton(i) 1 (117:1) Alleluia. Give thanks to the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 2 (117:2) Let now the house of Israel say, that he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 3 (117:3) Let now the house of Aaron say, that he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 4 (117:4) Let now all that fear the Lord say, that he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 5 (117:5) I called on the Lord out of affliction: and he hearkened to me, so as to bring me into a wide place. 6 (117:6) The Lord is my helper; and I will not fear what man shall do to me. 7 (117:7) The Lord is my helper; and I shall see my desire upon mine enemies. 8 (117:8) It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in man. 9 (117:9) It is better to hope in the Lord, than to hope in princes. 10 (117:10) All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 11 (117:11) They completely compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 12 (117:12) They compassed me about as bees do a honeycomb, and they burst into flame as fire among thorns: but in the name of the Lord I repulsed them. 13 (117:13) I was thrust, and sorely shaken, that I might fall: but the Lord helped me. 14 (117:14) The Lord is my strength and my song, and is become my salvation. 15 (117:15) The voice of exultation and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord has wrought mightily. 16 (117:16) The right hand of the Lord has exalted me: the right hand of the Lord has wrought powerfully. 17 (117:17) I shall not die, but live, and recount the works of the Lord. 18 (117:18) The Lord has chastened me sore: but he has not given me up to death. 19 (117:19) Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and give praise to the Lord. 20 (117:20) This is the gate of the Lord: the righteous shall enter by it. 21 (117:21) I will give thanks to thee; because thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. 22 (117:22) The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner. 23 (117:23) This has been done of the Lord; and it is wonderful in our eyes. 24 (117:24) This is the day which the Lord has made: let us exult and rejoice in it. 25 (117:25) O Lord, save now: O Lord, send now prosperity. 26 (117:26) Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. 27 (117:27) God is the Lord, and he has shined upon us: celebrate the feast with thick branches, binding the victims even to the horns of the altar. 28 (117:28) Thou art my God, and I will give thee thanks: thou art my God, and I will exalt thee. I will give thanks to thee, for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. 29 (117:29) Give thanks to the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
