Psalm 118

Psalms: 118

Processional Hymn for the Feast of Tabernacles.  Psalm 118(v117)

1O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his steadfast love endures for ever!

2Let Israel say,
"His steadfast love endures for ever."
3Let the house of Aaron say,
"His steadfast love endures for ever."
4Let those who fear the LORD say,
"His steadfast love endures for ever."

5Out of my distress I called on the LORD;
the LORD answered me and set me free.
6With the LORD on my side I do not fear.
What can man do to me?
7The LORD is on my side to help me;
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
8It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to put confidence in man.
9It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to put confidence in princes.

10All nations surrounded me;
in the name of the LORD I cut them off!
11They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side;
in the name of the LORD I cut them off!
12They surrounded me like bees, they blazed like a fire of thorns;
in the name of the LORD I cut them off!
13I was pushed hard, so that I was falling,
but the LORD helped me.
14The LORD is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.

15Hark, glad songs of victory in the tents of the righteous:
"The right hand of the LORD does valiantly,
16the right hand of the LORD is exalted,
the right hand of the LORD does valiantly!"
17I shall not die, but I shall live,
and recount the deeds of the LORD.
18The LORD has chastened me sorely,
but he has not given me over to death.

19Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them and give thanks to the LORD.

20This is the gate of the LORD;
the righteous shall enter through it.

21I thank thee that thou hast answered me
and hast become my salvation.
22The stone which the builders rejected
has become the head of the corner.
23This is the LORD's doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
24This is the day which the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25Save us, we beseech thee, O LORD!
O LORD, we beseech thee, give us success!

26Blessed be he who enters in the name of the LORD!
We bless you from the house of the LORD.
27The LORD is God, and he has given us light.
Bind the festal procession with branches,
up to the horns of the altar!

28Thou art my God, and I will give thanks to thee;
thou art my God, I will extol thee.

29O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures for ever!
