Psalm 118Names of God Bible (NOG)

Psalm 118

Give thanks to Yahweh because he is good,
    because his mercy endures forever.
        Israel should say,
            “His mercy endures forever.”
        The descendants of Aaron should say,
            “His mercy endures forever.”
        Those who fear Yahweh should say,
            “His mercy endures forever.”

During times of trouble I called on Yah.
    Yah answered me and set me free from all of them.
Yahweh is on my side.
    I am not afraid.
        What can mortals do to me?
Yahweh is on my side as my helper.
    I will see the defeat of those who hate me.
It is better to depend on Yahweh
    than to trust mortals.
It is better to depend on Yahweh
    than to trust influential people.

10 All the nations surrounded me,
    but armed with the name of Yahweh, I defeated them.
11 They surrounded me. Yes, they surrounded me,
    but armed with the name of Yahweh, I defeated them.
12 They swarmed around me like bees,
    but they were extinguished like burning thornbushes.
        So armed with the name of Yahweh, I defeated them.
13 They pushed hard to make me fall,
    but Yahweh helped me.
14 Yah is my strength and my song.
    He is my savior.

15 The sound of joyful singing and victory is heard
    in the tents of righteous people.
        The right hand of Yahweh displays strength.
16 The right hand of Yahweh is held high.
    The right hand of Yahweh displays strength.
17 I will not die,
    but I will live and tell what Yah has done.
18 Yah disciplined me severely,
    but he did not allow me to be killed.

19 Open the gates of righteousness for me.
    I will go through them and give thanks to Yah.
20 This is the gate of Yahweh
    through which righteous people will enter.

21 I give thanks to you,
    because you have answered me.
        You are my savior.
22 The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
23 Yahweh is responsible for this,
    and it is amazing for us to see.
24 This is the day Yahweh has made.
    Let’s rejoice and be glad today!
25 We beg you, O Yahweh, save us!
    We beg you, O Yahweh, give us success!
26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of Yahweh.
    We bless you from Yahweh’s house.
27 Yahweh is El, and he has given us light.
    March in a festival procession
        with branches to the horns of the altar.
28 You are my El, and I give thanks to you.
    My Elohim, I honor you highly.

29 Give thanks to Yahweh because he is good,
    because his mercy endures forever.
