Psalm 118. Confitemini Domino.
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is gracious; * because his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let Israel now confess that he is gracious, * and that his mercy endureth for ever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now confess, * that his mercy endureth for ever.
4 Yea, let them now that fear the LORD confess, * that his mercy endureth for ever.
5 I called upon the LORD in trouble; * and the LORD heard me at large.
6 The LORD is on my side; * I will not fear what man doeth unto me.
7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me; * therefore shall I see my desire upon mine enemies.
8 It is better to trust in the LORD, * than to put any confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the LORD, * than to put any confidence in princes.
10 All nations compassed me round about; * but in the Name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11 They kept me in on every side, they kept me in, I say, on every side; * but in the Name of the LORD will I destroy them.
12 They came about me like bees, and are extinct even as the fire among the thorns; * for in the Name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13 Thou hast thrust sore at me, that I might fall; * but the LORD was my help.
14 The LORD is my strength, and my song; * and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous; * the right hand of the LORD bringeth mighty things to pass.
16 The right hand of the LORD hath the pre-eminence; * the right hand of the LORD bringeth mighty things to pass.
17 I shall not die, but live, * and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD hath chastened and corrected me; * but he hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open me the gates of righteousness, * that I may go into them, and give thanks unto the LORD.
20 This is the gate of the LORD, * the righteous shall enter into it.
21 I will thank thee; for thou hast heard me, * and art become my salvation.
22 The same stone which the builders refused, * is become the head-stone in the comer.
23 This is the LORD'S doing, * and it is marvellous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; * we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Help me now, O LORD: * O LORD, send us now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the Name of the LORD: * we have wished you good luck, we that are of the house of the LORD.
27 God is the LORD, who hath showed us light: * bind the sacrifice with cords, yea, even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will thank thee; * thou art my God, and I will praise thee.
29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is gracious, * and his mercy endureth for ever.
