Psalm 118 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 Give thanks to the LORD,1 for he is good;2 his love endures forever.3 2 Let Israel say:4 "His love endures forever."5 3 Let the house of Aaron say:6 "His love endures forever." 4 Let those who fear the LORD7 say: "His love endures forever." 5 When hard pressed,8 I cried to the LORD; he brought me into a spacious place.9 6 The LORD is with me;10 I will not be afraid. What can human beings do to me?11 7 The LORD is with me; he is my helper.12 I look in triumph on my enemies.13 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD14 than to trust in human beings.15 9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.16 10 All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the LORD I cut them down.17 11 They surrounded me18 on every side,19 but in the name of the LORD I cut them down. 12 They swarmed around me like bees,20 but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns;21 in the name of the LORD I cut them down.22 13 I was pushed back and about to fall, but the LORD helped me.23 14 The LORD is my strength24 and my defensea; he has become my salvation.25 15 Shouts of joy26 and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: "The LORD's right hand27 has done mighty things!28 16 The LORD's right hand is lifted high; the LORD's right hand has done mighty things!" 17 I will not die29 but live, and will proclaim30 what the LORD has done. 18 The LORD has chastened31 me severely, but he has not given me over to death.32 19 Open for me the gates33 of the righteous; I will enter34 and give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD35 through which the righteous may enter.36 21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;37 you have become my salvation.38 22 The stone39 the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;40 23 the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous41 in our eyes. 24 The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.42 25 LORD, save us!43 LORD, grant us success! 26 Blessed is he who comes44 in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you.b45 27 The LORD is God,46 and he has made his light shine47 on us. With boughs in hand,48 join in the festal procession upc to the horns of the altar.49 28 You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God,50 and I will exalt51 you. 29 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
