Psalm 118Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 118

Oh, give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good,
    because His mercy endures forever.

Let Israel say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”

I called upon the Lord from my distress;
    the Lord answered me and set me in an open place.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
    What can people do to me?
The Lord is on my side to help me;
    I shall look in triumph upon those who hate me.

It is better to trust in the Lord
    than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the Lord
    than to put confidence in princes.
10 All nations encircled me,
    but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
11 They circled me; indeed, they surrounded me,
    but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
12 They circled me like bees;
    they went forth as a fire over thorns,
    but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
13 You have pushed against me, that I was falling,
    but the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and song;
    He has become my salvation.

15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation
    is in the tents of the righteous:
“The right hand of the Lord is valiant.
16     The right hand of the Lord is exalted;
    the right hand of the Lord is valiant.”
17 I shall not die, but I shall live
    and declare the works of the Lord.
18 The Lord has severely chastened me,
    but He has not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;
    I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord;
    the righteous shall enter through.
21 I will thank You that You have heard me
    and have become my deliverance.

22 The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
23 This is what the Lord has done;
    it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day that the Lord has made;
    we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save us, we ask You, O Lord;
    O Lord, we ask You, send now success.

26 Blessed be he that comes in the name of the Lord:
    we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.
27 The Lord is God,
    and He has shown us His light;
bind the sacrifice with cords,
    even unto the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will praise You;
    You are my God, I will exalt You.

29 Oh, give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good,
    for His mercy endures forever.
