Go to Commentary on Ps 118
 

 1 Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good,

 for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.

 

 2 Oh, let Israel say,

 “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”

 

 3 Oh, let the house of Aaron say,

 “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”

 

 4 Oh, let those who fear Yahweh say,

 “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”

 

 
5 
Out of my distress, I called upon Yah.

 Yah answered me and set me in a spacious place.

 

 6 Yahweh is for me; I will not fear;

 what can man do to me?

 

 7 Yahweh is for me as one of my helpers;

 therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate me.

 

 
8 
It is better to seek refuge in Yahweh

 than to trust in man.

 

 9 It is better to seek refuge in Yahweh

 than to trust in nobles.

 

 
10 
All the nations surrounded me,

 but in the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.

 

 11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me.

 In the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.

 

 12 They surrounded me like bees.

 They were extinguished like a fire of thorns.

 In the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.

 

 13 You aggressively pushed me to make me fall,

 but Yahweh helped me.

 

 14 Yah is my strength and song.

 He has become my salvation.

 

 
15 
The sound of joyful shouting and salvation

 is in the tents of the righteous.

 “The right hand of Yahweh acts mightily.

 

 16 The right hand of Yahweh is exalted!

 The right hand of Yahweh acts mightily!”

 

 17 I did not die, but I live,

 and I will declare the works of Yah.

 

 18 Yah has sternly corrected me,

 but he has not given me over to death.

 

 
19 
Open to me the gates of righteousness!

 I will enter through them;

 I will give thanks to Yah.

 

 20 This is the gate to Yahweh;

 only the righteous may enter through it.

 

 21 I will give thanks to you,

 for you have answered me

 and have become my salvation.

 

 22 The stone that the builders rejected

 has become the head corner stone.

 

 23 This stone was brought about by Yahweh.

 It is marvelous in our eyes.

 

 24 This is the day that Yahweh has made;

 let us rejoice and be glad in it!

 

 
25 
Please, O Yahweh, deliver us now!

 Please, O Yahweh, grant us success now!

 

 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahweh!

 We have blessed you from the house of Yahweh.

 

 27 Yahweh is God, and he has caused light to shine upon us.

 Tie up the festival sacrifice with ropes

 to the horns of the altar.

 

 28 You are my God and I will give thanks to you;

 my God, I will exalt you.

 

 29 Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good;

 for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.
