118:1 Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, For his loving kindness endures forever.
118:2 Let Israel now say That his loving kindness endures forever.
118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say That his loving kindness endures forever.
118:4 Now let those who fear Yahweh say That his loving kindness endures forever.
118:5 Out of my distress, I called on Yah. Yah answered me with freedom.
118:6 Yahweh is on my side. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
118:7 Yahweh is on my side among those who help me. Therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
118:8 It is better to take refuge in Yahweh, Than to put confidence in man.
118:9 It is better to take refuge in Yahweh, Than to put confidence in princes.
118:10 All the nations surrounded me, But in the name of Yahweh, I cut them off.
118:11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me. In the name of Yahweh I indeed cut them off.
118:12 They surrounded me like bees. They are quenched like the burning thorns. In the name of Yahweh I cut them off.
118:13 You pushed me back hard, to make me fall, But Yahweh helped me.
118:14 Yah is my strength and song. He has become my salvation.
118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous. "The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly.
118:16 The right hand of Yahweh is exalted! The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly!"
118:17 I will not die, but live, And declare Yah's works.
118:18 Yah has punished me severely, But he has not given me over to death.
118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness. I will enter into them. I will give thanks to Yah.
118:20 This is the gate of Yahweh; The righteous will enter into it.
118:21 I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me, And have become my salvation.
118:22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner.
118:23 This is Yahweh's doing. It is marvelous in our eyes.
118:24 This is the day that Yahweh has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it!
118:25 Save us now, we beg you, Yahweh; Yahweh, we beg you, now send prosperity.
118:26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahweh! We have blessed you out of the house of Yahweh.
118:27 Yahweh is God, and he has given us light. Bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar.
118:28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you. You are my God, I will exalt you.
118:29 Oh give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, For his loving kindness endures forever.
