118Psalms

1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
for his love endures for ever.

Processional Hymn for the Feast of Tabernacles. Psalm 118(v117)
2 Declare it, house of Israel:
his love endures for ever.

 
3 Declare it, house of Aaron:
his love endures for ever.

 
4 Declare it, you that fear the LORD:
his love endures for ever.

 
5 When in my distress I called to the LORD,
his answer was to set me free.

 
6 The LORD is on my side, I have no fear;
what can man do to me?

 
7 The LORD is on my side, he is my helper,
and I shall gloat over my enemies.

 
8 It is better to find refuge in the LORD
than to trust in men.

 
9 It is better to find refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.

 
10 All nations surround me,
but in the LORD's name I will drive them away.

 
11 They surround me on this side and on that,
but in the LORD's name I will drive them away.

 
12 They surround me like bees at the honey;
they attack me, as fire attacks brushwood,
but in the LORD's name I will drive them away.

 
13 They thrust hard against me so that I nearly fall;
but the LORD has helped me.

 
14 The LORD is my refuge and defence,
and he has become my deliverer.

 
15 Hark! Shouts of deliverance
in the camp of the victors Or righteous!

 
16 With his right hand the LORD does mighty deeds,
the right hand of the LORD raises up.

 
17 I shall not die but live
to proclaim the works of the LORD.

 
18 The LORD did indeed chasten me,
but he did not surrender me to Death.

 
19 Open to me the gates of victory Or righteousness;
I will enter by them and praise the LORD.

 
20 This is the gate of the LORD;
the victors Or righteous shall make their entry through it.

 
21 I will praise thee, for thou hast answered me
and hast become my deliverer.

 
22 The stone which the builders rejected
has become the chief corner-stone.

 
23 This is the LORD's doing;
it is marvellous in our eyes.

 
24 This is the day on which the LORD has acted Or which the LORD has made:
let us exult and rejoice in it.

 
25 We pray thee, O LORD, deliver us;
we pray thee, O LORD, send us prosperity.

 
26 Blessed in the name of the LORD are all who come;
we bless you from the house of the LORD.

 
27 The LORD is God; he has given light to us,
the ordered line of pilgrims by the horns of the altar.

 
28 Thou art my God and I will praise thee;
my God, I will exalt thee.

 
29 It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
for his love endures for ever.
