Praise to God for His Loyal Love

1 Give thanks to Yahweh for [he is] good, for his loyal love [is] forever. 2 Let Israel say, "His loyal love [is] forever." 3 Let the house of Aaron say, "His loyal love [is] forever." 4 Let [those who] fear Yahweh say, "His loyal love [is] forever." 5 Out of [my] distress I called to Yah.a Yah answered me, [setting me] in a broad place. 6 Yahweh [is] for me; I do not fear. What can [mere] humansb do to me? 7 Yahweh [is] for me as my helper, and [so] I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. 8 [It is] better to take refuge in Yahweh than to trust in humans.c 9 [It is] better to take refuge in Yahweh than to trust princes. 10 All nations surrounded me. In the name of Yahweh I opposed them indeed. 11 They surrounded me; yes, they surrounded me. In the name of Yahweh I opposed them indeed. 12 They surrounded me like bees; they were extinguished like a fire of thorns. In the name of Yahweh I opposed them indeed. 13 You pushed me hardd to [make me] fall, but Yahweh helped me. 14 Yahe [is] my strength and [my] song,f and he has become my salvation.g 15 [The] sound of rejoicing and salvationh [is] in [the] tents of [the] righteous; the right hand of Yahweh [has] done valiantly. 16 The right hand of Yahweh [has] exalted; the right hand of Yahweh [has] done valiantly. 17 I will not die but live, and tell of the works of Yah.i 18 Yah has disciplined me severely, but he did not consignj me to death. 19 Open to me [the] gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them [and] give thanks to Yah.k 20 This [is] the gate of Yahweh, through [which the] righteous will enter. 21 I will give thanks [to] you for you have answered me, and you have become my salvation.l 22 [The] stone the builders rejected has become [the] chief cornerstone. 23 This is from Yahweh; it is wonderful in our eyes. 24 This [is] the day Yahweh has worked;m let us rejoice and be glad in him.n 25 O Yahweh, please save; O Yahweh, please grant success. 26 Blessed [is] he who comes in the name of Yahweh. We bless youo from the housep of Yahweh. 27 Yahweh is God, and he has given us light.q Bind [the] festal sacrificer with cordss to the hornst of the altar. 28 You [are] my God, and I will give thanks to you. [You are] my God; I will exalt you. 29 Give thanks to Yahweh for [he is] good, for his loyal love [is] forever.
