Psalm 118:19-29 Good News Translation (GNT)

19 Open to me the gates of the Temple;
    I will go in and give thanks to the Lord!

20 This is the gate of the Lord;
    only the righteous can come in.

21 I praise you, Lord, because you heard me,
    because you have given me victory.

22 The stone which the builders rejected as worthless
    turned out to be the most important of all.
23 This was done by the Lord;
    what a wonderful sight it is!
24 This is the day of the Lord's victory;
    let us be happy, let us celebrate!
25 Save us, Lord, save us!
    Give us success, O Lord!

26 May God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
    From the Temple of the Lord we bless you.
27 The Lord is God; he has been good to us.
With branches in your hands, start the festival
    and march around the altar.

28 You are my God, and I give you thanks;
    I will proclaim your greatness.

29 Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,
    and his love is eternal.

23 the Lord has done this,
    and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it this very day;
    let us rejoice today and be glad.
