Psalm 118Tree of Life Version (TLV)

His Chesed Endures Forever

Psalm 118

Praise[a] Adonai, for He is good.
For His lovingkindness endures forever.
O let Israel say:
For His lovingkindness endures forever.
O let the house of Aaron say:
For His lovingkindness endures forever.
O let those who fear Adonai say:
For His lovingkindness endures forever.

Out of a tight place I called on Adonai
Adonai answered me with a spacious place.
Adonai is for me—I will not fear!
What can man do to me?
Adonai is for me, as my helper.
I will see the downfall of those who hate me.
It is better to take refuge in Adonai
than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in Adonai
than to trust in princes.
10 All nations surrounded me—
in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
11 They surrounded me, yes, all around me—
in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
12 They swarmed around me like bees—
they were extinguished like burning thorns—
in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
13 You pushed me hard to make me fall,
but Adonai helped me.
14 Adonai is my strength and song,
and He has become my salvation.[b]
15 Shouts of joy and victory
are in the tents of the righteous:
    Adonai’s right hand is mighty![c]
16 Adonai’s right hand is lifted high!
    Adonai’s right hand is mighty!”

17 I will not die, but live,
and proclaim what Adonai has done!
18 Adonai has chastened me hard,
but has not given me over to death.

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them and praise Adonai.
20 This is the gate of Adonai
the righteous will enter through it.[d]
21 I give You thanks, because You have answered me
and have become my salvation.
22 The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone.[e]
23 It is from Adonai:
it is marvelous in our eyes!
24 This is the day that Adonai has made!
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
25 Hoshia-na! Please, Adonai, save now!
We beseech You, Adonai, prosper us!
26 Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai
Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Adonai.[f]
We bless you from the House of Adonai.
27 Adonai is God, and He has given us light.
Join the festival with branches, up to the horns of the altar.[g]
28 You are my God, and I praise You.
You are my God—I exalt You!
29 Praise Adonai, for He is good,
for His lovingkindness endures forever.
