A Song of Victory

Select passages from Psalm 118, The New Oxford Annotated Bible, NRSV, 4th ed.

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his steadfast love endures forever!
5 Out of my distress I called on the LORD;
the LORD answered me and set me in a broad place.
6 With the LORD on my side I do not fear.
13 I was pushed hard, so that I was falling,
but the LORD helped me.
14 The LORD is my strength and my might;
he has become my salvation.
21 I thank you that you have answered me
and have become my salvation.
23 This is the LORD’s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
27 The LORD is God,
and he has given us light.
29 O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
