1Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.
2Oh, let Israel say, “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”
3Oh, let the house of Aaron say, “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”
4Oh, let those who fear Yahweh say, “Surely his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”
5Out of my distress, I called upon Yah. Yah answered me and set me in a spacious place.
6Yahweh is for me; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
7Yahweh is for me as one of my helpers; therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
8It is better to seek refuge in Yahweh than to trust in man.
9It is better to seek refuge in Yahweh than to trust in nobles.
10All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.
11They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me. In the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.
12They surrounded me like bees. They were extinguished like a fire of thorns. In the name of Yahweh I surely fended them off.
13You aggressively pushed me to make me fall, but Yahweh helped me.
14Yah is my strength and song. He has become my salvation.
15The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous. “The right hand of Yahweh acts mightily.
16The right hand of Yahweh is exalted! The right hand of Yahweh acts mightily!”
17I did not die, but I live, and I will declare the works of Yah.
18Yah has sternly corrected me, but he has not given me over to death.
19Open to me the gates of righteousness! I will enter through them; I will give thanks to Yah.
20This is the gate to Yahweh; only the righteous may enter through it.
21I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me and have become my salvation.
22The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
23This stone was brought about by Yahweh. It is marvelous in our eyes.
24This is the day that Yahweh has made; let’s rejoice and be glad in it!
25Please, O Yahweh, deliver us now! Please, O Yahweh, grant us success now!
26Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahweh! We have blessed you from the house of Yahweh.
27Yahweh is God, and he has caused light to shine upon us. Tie up the festival sacrifice with ropes to the horns of the altar.
28You are my God and I will give thanks to you; my God, I will exalt you.
29Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good; for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.
