Psalm 118
Berean Study Bible Par ▾ 

Give Thanks to the LORD, for He is Good

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;

His loving devotion endures forever.

2Let Israel say,

“His loving devotion endures forever.”

3Let the house of Aaron say,

“His loving devotion endures forever.”

4Let those who fear the LORD say,

“His loving devotion endures forever.”

5In my distress I called to the LORD,

and He answered and set me free.

6The LORD is with me;a I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

7The LORD is with me; He is my helper.

Therefore I will look in triumph on those who hate me.

8It is better to take refuge in the LORD

than to trust in man.

9It is better to take refuge in the LORD

than to trust in princes.

10All the nations surrounded me;

in the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

11They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me;

in the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

12They swarmed around me like bees;

they were extinguished like a fire of thorns;

in the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

13I was pushed so hard I was falling,

but the LORD helped me.

14The LORD is my strength and my song,

and He has become my salvation.

15Shouts of joy and salvation resound in the tents of the righteous:

“The right hand of the LORD performs with valor!

16The right hand of the LORD is exalted!

The right hand of the LORD performs with valor!”

17I will not die, but I will live

and proclaim what the LORD has done.

18The LORD disciplined me severely,

but He has not given me over to death.

19Open to me the gates of righteousness;

I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.

20This is the gate of the LORD;

the righteous shall enter through it.

21I will give You thanks, for You have answered me,

and You have become my salvation.

22The stone the builders rejected

has become the cornerstone.b

23This is from the LORD,

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

24This is the day that the LORD has made;

we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25O LORD, save us, we pray.

We beseech You, O LORD, cause us to prosper!

26Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.

From the house of the LORD we bless you.

27The LORD is God

and has made His light shine upon us.

Bind the festival sacrifice with cords

to the horns of the altar.

28You are my God, and I will give You thanks.

You are my God, and I will exalt You.

29Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;

His loving devotion endures forever.
