1 O give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; because His mercy endures forever. 2 Let Israel now say that His mercy endures forever. 3 Let the house of Aaron now say that His mercy endures forever. 4 Let those who fear Jehovah now say that His mercy endures forever.
5 I called on Jehovah in distress; Jehovah answered me, and set me in a large place. 6 Jehovah is for me, I will not fear; what can man do to me? 7 Jehovah is for me among those who help me; and I will see my desire on those who hate me.
8 It is better to trust in Jehovah than to trust in man. 9 It is better to trust in Jehovah than to trust in princes.
10 All the nations surround me, but in the name of Jehovah I will destroy them. 11 They surround me; yea, they surround me, but in the name of Jehovah I will destroy them. 12 They surround me like bees; they are put out like the fire of thorns; for in the name of Jehovah I will cut them off. 13 You have thrust hard at me so that I might fall; but Jehovah helped me. 14 Jehovah is my strength and song, and He is my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of Jehovah does mighty things. 16 The right hand of Jehovah is lifted up; the right hand of Jehovah does mighty things. 17 I shall not die, but live and declare the works of Jehovah. 18 Jehovah has sorely chastened me; but He has not given me over to death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go into them, and I will praise Jehovah. 20 This is the gate of Jehovah into which the righteous shall enter. 21 I will praise You; for You have heard me, and are my salvation. 22 The Stone which the builders refused has become the Head of the corner. 23 This is from Jehovah; it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which Jehovah has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech You, O Jehovah; O Jehovah, I beseech You, cause us to prosper now. 26 Blessed is He coming in the name of Jehovah; we have blessed You out of the house of Jehovah. 27 God is Jehovah, who gives light to us. Tie the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will exalt You; You are my God, I will praise You. 29 Oh give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.
