"O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
2
So let Israel now say, for His mercy endureth for ever,
3
So let the house of Aaron now say, for His mercy endureth for ever.
4
So let them now that fear the LORD say, for His mercy endureth for ever.
5
Out of my straits I called upon the LORD;
He answered me with great enlargement.
6
The LORD is for me;
I will not fear;
what can man do unto me?
7
The LORD is for me as my helper;
and I shall gaze upon them that hate me.
8
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
9
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.
10
All nations compass me about;
verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.
11
They compass me about, yea, they compass me about;
verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.
12
They compass me about like bees;
they are quenched as the fire of thorns;
verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.
13
Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall;
but the LORD helped me.
14
The LORD is my strength and song;
and He is become my salvation.
15
The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
16
The right hand of the LORD is exalted;
the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
17
I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18
The LORD hath chastened me sore;
but He hath not given me over unto death.
19
Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto the LORD.
20
This is the gate of the LORD;
the righteous shall enter into it.
21
I will give thanks unto Thee, for Thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation.
22
The stone which the builders rejected is become the chief corner-stone.
23
This is the LORD"S doing;
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
We beseech Thee, O LORD, save now!
We beseech Thee, O LORD, make us now to prosper!
26
Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD;
we bless you out of the house of the LORD.
27
The LORD is God, and hath given us light;
order the festival procession with boughs, even unto the horns of the altar.
28
Thou art my God, and I will give thanks unto Thee;
Thou art my God, I will exalt Thee.
29
O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
