14 The Lord is my strength(A) and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.(B)

15 Shouts of joy(C) and victory
    resound in the tents of the righteous:
“The Lord’s right hand(D) has done mighty things!(E)
16     The Lord’s right hand is lifted high;
    the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17 I will not die(F) but live,
    and will proclaim(G) what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has chastened(H) me severely,
    but he has not given me over to death.(I)
19 Open for me the gates(J) of the righteous;
    I will enter(K) and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord(L)
    through which the righteous may enter.(M)
21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;(N)
    you have become my salvation.(O)

22 The stone(P) the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;(Q)
23 the Lord has done this,
    and it is marvelous(R) in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it this very day;
    let us rejoice today and be glad.(S)

25 Lord, save us!(T)
    Lord, grant us success!

26 Blessed is he who comes(U) in the name of the Lord.
    From the house of the Lord we bless you.[b](V)
27 The Lord is God,(W)
    and he has made his light shine(X) on us.
With boughs in hand,(Y) join in the festal procession
    up[c] to the horns of the altar.(Z)

28 You are my God, and I will praise you;
    you are my God,(AA) and I will exalt(AB) you.

29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
