Psalm 118 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Give thanks to the LORD because he is good, because his mercy endures forever. 2 Israel should say, "His mercy endures forever." 3 The descendants of Aaron should say, "His mercy endures forever." 4 Those who fear the LORD should say, "His mercy endures forever." 5 During times of trouble I called on the LORD. The LORD answered me [and] set me free [from all of them]. 6 The LORD is on my side. I am not afraid. What can mortals do to me? 7 The LORD is on my side as my helper. I will see [the defeat of] those who hate me. 8 It is better to depend on the LORD than to trust mortals. 9 It is better to depend on the LORD than to trust influential people. 10 All the nations surrounded me, [but armed] with the name of the LORD, I defeated them. 11 They surrounded me. Yes, they surrounded me, [but armed] with the name of the LORD, I defeated them. 12 They swarmed around me like bees, but they were extinguished like burning thornbushes. [So armed] with the name of the LORD, I defeated them. 13 They pushed hard to make me fall, but the LORD helped me. 14 The LORD is my strength and my song. He is my savior. 15 The sound of joyful singing and victory is heard in the tents of righteous people. The right hand of the LORD displays strength. 16 The right hand of the LORD is held high. The right hand of the LORD displays strength. 17 I will not die, but I will live and tell what the LORD has done. 18 The LORD disciplined me severely, but he did not allow me to be killed. 19 Open the gates of righteousness for me. I will go through them [and] give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD through which righteous people will enter. 21 I give thanks to you, because you have answered me. You are my savior. 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 23 The LORD is responsible for this, and it is amazing for us to see. 24 This is the day the LORD has made. Let's rejoice and be glad today! 25 We beg you, O LORD, save us! We beg you, O LORD, give us success! 26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD. We bless you from the LORD's house. 27 The LORD is God, and he has given us light. March in a festival procession with branches to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I give thanks to you. My God, I honor you highly. 29 Give thanks to the LORD because he is good, because his mercy endures forever.
