PSALM 118

1 Celebrate ye Jehovah! for he is good: For to everlasting endureth his mercy.

2 Let now Israel say: “For 386386     In the French version, in this and the two following verses, it is “that.” to everlasting endureth his mercy.”

3 Let now the house of Aaron say: “For to everlasting endureth his mercy.”

4 Let now those who fear Jehovah say: “For to everlasting endureth his mercy.”

5 In my distress I called upon God; God answered me by setting me at large.

6 Jehovah is with me: I will not fear what man can do to me.

7 Jehovah is with me among those who help me, And I shall see my desire upon my adversaries.

8 It is better to hope in Jehovah Than to place confidence in man:

9 It is better to hope in Jehovah Than to place confidence in princes.

10 All the nations encompassed me: But in the name of Jehovah I will surely cut them off.

11 They encompassed me, yea they encompassed me, But in the name of Jehovah I will surely cut them off’.

12 They encompassed me as bees: They were extinguished as a fire of thorns: In the name of Jehovah I will surely cut them off.

13 Thou hast thrust and 387387     Literally, “thrusting thou has thrust.” thrust at me, that I might fall: But Jehovah helped me.

14 My strength and my song is God, And he hath become to me salvation.

15 The voice of exultation and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah hath done valiantly.

16 The right hand of Jehovah is exalted, The right hand of Jehovah hath done valiantly.

17 I shall not die, yea, I shall live, And recount the works of God.

18 Chastised me sorely hath 388388     Literally, “chastising hath chastised me.” God; But he hath not delivered me up unto death.

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; And having entered into them, I will celebrate God.

20 This is the gate of Jehovah, The just ones shall enter into it.

21 I will celebrate thee because thou hast heard me, And hast been my salvation.

22 The stone which the builders rejected Is become the head [stone] of the corner.

23 By Jehovah hath this been done: It is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day which Jehovah hath made; Let us exult and rejoice in it.

25 I beseech thee, O Jehovah! save me; I beseech thee, I beseech thee, O Jehovah! give prosperity I beseech thee.

26 Blessed is he who cometh in the name of Jehovah: We bless you from the house of Jehovah.

27 God is Jehovah, and he hath given light to us: Bind ye the lamb with cords, even to the horns of the altar.

28 My God art thou, and I will celebrate thee: My God, I will exalt thee.

29 Celebrate ye Jehovah; for he is good: For to everlasting is his mercy.
