Psalms 118

VIN(i) 1 Give thanks to the LORD for He is good, for His grace endures forever. 2 Let Israel say, "His loyal love is forever." 3 Let the house of Aaron say, "His loyal love is forever." 4 Let those who fear the LORD say, "His loyal love is forever." 5 In my distress I called to the LORD; he answered me and set me free. 6 the LORD is with me, I will not be afraid; what can man do to me? 7 the LORD is for me as my helper, and so I will look in triumph on those who hate me. 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. 9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes. 10 All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the LORD, I cut them off. 11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me. In the name of the LORD I indeed cut them off. 12 They surrounded me like bees but they are quenched like the burning thorns. In the name of the LORD I cut them off. 13 I was pushed, yea pushed so as to fall, Yet the LORD, He helped me." 14 The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. 15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of the LORD does mighty things. 16 the LORD's right hand is exalted; the LORD's right hand does valiantly. 17 I shall not die: but live and proclaim the works of the Lord. 18 The LORD has chastened me severely: but he has not given me over unto death. 19 Open for me the gates of righteousness, and I will go in at them and give thanks to the Lord. 20 This is the gate of the LORD, through which the righteous will enter. 21 I will give thee thanks, for thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation. 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 23 From the LORD came this; It is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day the LORD has made let us rejoice and be glad in it! 25 O Lord, save me: O Lord, give good success. 26 Blessed be he that comes in the name of the LORD; from the house of the LORD we bless you. 27 The LORD is God, and he has given us light. Bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you. You are my God, I will exalt you. 29 O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
