The Psalter According to the Seventy


Psalm 117

Alleluia.

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let the house of Israel now say that He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say that He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
4 Let all that fear the Lord now say that He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
5 Out of mine affliction I called upon the Lord, and He heard me and brought me into a broad place.
6 The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 The Lord is my helper, and I shall look down upon mine enemies.
8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in man.
9 It is better to hope in the Lord than to hope in princes.
10 All the nations compassed me round about, and by the name of the Lord I warded them off.
11 Surrounding me they compassed me, and by the name of the Lord I warded them off.
12 They compassed me about like unto bees around a honeycomb, and they burst into flame like a fire among the thorns, and by the name of the Lord I warded them off.
13 I was pushed and overturned that I might fall, and the Lord was quick to help me.
14 The Lord is my strength and my song, and He is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous.
16 The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength, the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me, the right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength.
17 I shall not die, but live, and I shall tell of the works of the Lord.
18 With chastisement hath the Lord chastened me, but He hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open unto me the gates of righteousness; I will enter therein and give thanks unto the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord, the righteous shall enter in thereat.
21 I will give thanks unto Thee, for Thou hast heard me and art become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner.
23 This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad therein.
25 O Lord, save now; O Lord, send now prosperity. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
26 We have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. God is the Lord, and hath appeared unto us.
27 Ordain a feast with thick boughs, even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will confess Thee; Thou art my God, and I will exalt Thee.
29 I will give thanks unto Thee, for Thou hast heard me, and Thou art become my salvation.
30 O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
