118:11 They surrounded me on every side, but in the name of the Lord I cut them off.

118:21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.
118:22 The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;
118:23 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

118:25 O Lord , save us; O Lord , grant us success.
118:26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord . From the house of the Lord we bless you.
118:27 The Lord is God, and he has made his light shine upon us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar.
118:28 You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you.
118:29 Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good; his love endures forever.
