Psalms 118 (asv)

Psalms 118 (asv)

118:1Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good;

For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

118:2Let Israel now say,

That his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

118:3Let the house of Aaron now say,

That his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

118:4Let them now that fear Jehovah say,

That his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

118:5Out of my distress I called upon Jehovah:

Jehovah answered me and set me in a large place.

118:6Jehovah is on my side; I will not fear:

What can man do unto me?

118:7Jehovah is on my side among them that help me:

Therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

118:8It is better to take refuge in Jehovah

Than to put confidence in man.

118:9It is better to take refuge in Jehovah

Than to put confidence in princes.

118:10All nations compassed me about:

In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off.

118:11They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about:

In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off.

118:12They compassed me about like bees;

They are quenched as the fire of thorns:

In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off.

118:13Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall;

But Jehovah helped me.

118:14Jehovah is my strength and song;

And he is become my salvation.

118:15The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous:

The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.

118:16The right hand of Jehovah is exalted:

The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.

118:17I shall not die, but live,

And declare the works of Jehovah.

118:18 Jehovah hath chastened me sore;

But he hath not given me over unto death.

118:19Open to me the gates of righteousness:

I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto Jehovah.

118:20This is the gate of Jehovah;

The righteous shall enter into it.

118:21I will give thanks unto thee; for thou hast answered me,

And art become my salvation.

118:22The stone which the builders rejected Is become the head of the corner.

118:23This is Jehovah's doing;

It is marvellous in our eyes.

118:24This is the day which Jehovah hath made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

118:25Save now, we beseech thee, O Jehovah:

O Jehovah, we beseech thee, send now prosperity.

118:26Blessed be he that cometh in the name of Jehovah:

We have blessed you out of the house of Jehovah.

118:27Jehovah is God, and he hath given us light:

Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

118:28Thou art my God, and I will give thanks unto thee:

Thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

118:29Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good;

For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.
