Psalm 118

A messianic psalm—Let all Israel say of the Lord, His mercy endures forever—The Stone that the builders refused is become the headstone of the corner—Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 I called upon the Lord in adistress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a blarge place.

 The Lord is on my side; I will not afear: what can man do unto me?

 The aLord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my bdesire upon them that hate me.

 It is better to atrust in the Lord than to put bconfidence in man.

 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

 10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

 11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

 12 They compassed me about like abees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

 13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.

 14 The Lord is my astrength and song, and is become my bsalvation.

 15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the atabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

 16 The right ahand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

 17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

 18 The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:

 20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.

 21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

 22 The astone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the bcorner.

 23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

 24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will arejoice and be glad in it.

 25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

 26 aBlessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

 27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

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

 29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
