Psalm 118:1
Context
Give Thanks to the Lord, for He is Good

1O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endures for ever. 2Let Israel now say, that his mercy endures for ever. 3Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endures for ever. 4Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endures for ever. 5I called on the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. 6The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do to me? 7The LORD takes my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire on them that hate me. 8It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. 9It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. 10All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. 11They compassed me about; yes, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. 12They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. 13You have thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me. 14The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. 15The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly. 16The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly. 17I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. 18The LORD has chastened me sore: but he has not given me over to death. 19Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD: 20This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter. 21I will praise you: for you have heard me, and are become my salvation. 22The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 23This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. 24This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. 25Save now, I beseech you, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech you, send now prosperity. 26Blessed be he that comes in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD. 27God is the LORD, which has showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar. 28You are my God, and I will praise you: you are my God, I will exalt you. 29O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
