Psalm 118
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Give thanks to YHWH, || For [He is] good, for His kindness [is] for all time.

2Now let Israel say, || His kindness [is] for all time.

3Now let the house of Aaron say, || His kindness [is] for all time.

4Now let those fearing YHWH say, || His kindness [is] for all time.

5I called YAH from the narrow place, || YAH answered me in a broad place.

6YHWH [is] for me, || I do not fear what man does to me.

7YHWH [is] for me among my helpers, || And I look on those hating me.

8Better to take refuge in YHWH, || Than to trust in man,

9Better to take refuge in YHWH, || Than to trust in princes.

10All nations have surrounded me, || In the Name of YHWH I surely cut them off.

11They have surrounded me, || Indeed, they have surrounded me, || In the Name of YHWH I surely cut them off.

12They surrounded me as bees, || They have been extinguished as a fire of thorns, || In the Name of YHWH I surely cut them off.

13You have severely thrust me to fall, || And YHWH has helped me.

14YAH is my strength and song, || And He is to me for salvation.

15A voice of singing and salvation, || [Is] in the tents of the righteous, || The right hand of YHWH is doing valiantly.

16The right hand of YHWH is exalted, || The right hand of YHWH is doing valiantly.

17I do not die, but live, || And recount the works of YAH,

18YAH has severely disciplined me, || And has not given me up to death.

19Open gates of righteousness to me, || I enter into them—I thank YAH.

20This [is] the gate to YHWH, || The righteous enter into it.

21I thank You, for You have answered me, || And are to me for salvation.

22A stone the builders refused || Has become head of a corner.

23This has been from YHWH, || It [is] wonderful in our eyes,

24This [is] the day YHWH has made, || We rejoice and are glad in it.

25Ah, now, O YHWH, please save, || Ah, now, O YHWH, please prosper.

26Blessed [is] He who is coming || In the Name of YHWH, || We blessed you from the house of YHWH,

27God [is] YHWH, and He gives light to us, || Direct the festal-sacrifice with cords, || To the horns of the altar.

28You [are] my God, and I confess You, || My God, I exalt You.

29Give thanks to YHWH, || For [He is] good, for His kindness [is] for all time!
