Psalm 118:27-29 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

27 The Lord is God,
and he makes light shine on us.
Bind the festival with branches as far as the horns of the altar.[a]
28 You are my God, and I will give you thanks.
You are my God, and I will exalt you.


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


  1. Psalm 118:27 To avoid imposing a guess on the text, the translation retains a literal translation of this very difficult line. It seems to mean: It’s the festival! Decorate the route with boughs and march in a procession toward the horns of the altar. Many suggest it means: Decorate the festival sacrificial animal with boughs and tie it to the horns of the altar, but Israelite worshippers did not approach the altar. Only priests did that, and by then the sacrifice had been cut into pieces.
