I shall not die but live and declare the deeds of the Lord.
The Lord chastised me harshly, but did not hand me over to death.
I thank you for you answered me; you have been my savior.
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
By the Lord has this been done; it is wonderful in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad.
Lord, grant salvation! Lord, grant good fortune!
You are my God, I give you thanks; my God, I offer you praise.
Give thanks to the Lord, who is good, whose love endures forever.
Psalm 118 continued – verses 17-18, 21-25, 28-29
