18 [a]The Lord has (A)disciplined me severely,
But He has (B)not turned me over to death.

19 (C)Open the gates of righteousness to me;
I will enter through them, I will give thanks to [b]the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord;
The (D)righteous will enter through it.
21 I will give thanks to You, for You have (E)answered me,
And You have (F)become my salvation.

22 A (G)stone which the builders rejected
Has become the [c]chief cornerstone.
23 This came about from the Lord;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let’s (H)rejoice and be glad in it.
