Psalm 113

Halleluyah! Praise God.

Sing praises, you servants of God. Let God be praised now and forever. From east to west, praised is God. God is exalted above all nations; God's glory extends beyond the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, enthroned on high, concerned with all below on earth and in the heavens? God lifts the poor out of the dust, raises the needy from the rubbish heap, and seats them with the powerful, with the of His people. God settles a barren woman in her home, a mother happy with children. Halleluyah!

Psalm 114

When Israel left the land of Egypt, when the House of Jacobs left alien people, Judah became God's holy one; Israel, God's domain. The sea fled at the sight; the Jordan retreated. Mountains leaped like rams; and hills, like lambs. O sea, why did you flee? Jordan, why did you retreat? Mountains, why leap like rams? and hills, like lambs? Even the earth trembled at God's presence, at the presence of Jacob's God who turns rock into pools of water, flint into fountains.

Psalm 115

Not for us, God, not for us, but for Yourself win praise through Your love and faithfulness. Why should the nations say: "Were is their God?" Our God is in heaven, doing whatever He wills. Their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have a mouth and cannot speak, eyes and cannot see. They have ears and cannot hear, a nose and cannot smell. They have hands and cannot feel, feet and cannot walk. They cannot make a sound in their throat. Their makers, all who trust in them, shall become like them. Let the House of Israel trust in God; God is their help and their shield. Let those who revere God trust in God; the Lord is their help and shield.

God remembers us with blessing; God will bless the House of Israel. God will bless the House of Aaron, and all those who revere God, young and old. May the Lord increase your blessings, yours and your children'. May you be blessed by God, maker of heaven and earth. The heavens belong to God; the earth God has entrusted to us. The dead cannot praise God, nor can those who go down into silence. But we shall praise the Lord now and forever. Halleluyah!

Psalm 116

I love knowing that God listens to my cry of supplication. Because God does hear me, I will call on God in days of need. The cords of death encompassed me; the grave held me in its grip, I found myself in distress and despair. I called on the Lord; I prayed that God would save me. Gracious is the Lord, and kind. Our God is compassionate. The Lord protects the simple I was brought low and God saved me. Be at ease once again, my soul, for the Lord has dealt kindly with you. God has delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I shall walk bbefore the Lord in the land of the living. I kept my faith even when greatly afflicted, even when, in anguish, I cried out: Mortals cannot be trusted!

How can I repay the Lord for all God's gifts to me? I will raise the cup of deliverance, and invoke the Lord by name. I will honor my vows to the Lord, in the presence of God's people. Grievous in the Lord's sight is the death of the faithful. I am Your servant, born of Your maidservant; You have released me from bondage. To You will I bring an offering, and invoke the Lord by name. I will honor my vows to the Lord in the presence of God's people, in the courts of the House of God, in the mdst of Jerusalem. Halleluyah!

Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, all nations; laud God, all peoples. God's love has overwhelmed us God's faithfulness endures forever. Halleluyah!

Psalm 118

Praise the Lord, for God is good; God's love endures forever.

Let the House of Israel declare: God's love endures forever.

Let the House of Aaron declare: God's love endures forever.

Let those who revere the Lord declare: God's love endures forever.

In distress I called to the Lord who answered by setting me free. The Lord is with me, I shall not fear; what can mortals do to me? With the Lord at my side, best help of all, I will yet see the fall of my foes. Better to depend on the Lord than to trust in mortals. Better to depend on the Lord than to trust in the powerful. Though all nations surrounded me, in the Lord's name I overcame them. Though they surrounded and encircled me, in the Lord's name I overcame them. Though they surrounded me like bees, like burning stingers they were smothered. In the Lord's name I overcame the. Hard pressed was I and tottering, but the Lord stood by me. God is my strength, my might, my deliverance. The homes of the righteous echo with songs of deliverance: "the might of God is triumphant. The might of God is supreme. The might of God is triumphant." I shall not die, but live to recount the deeds of God. The Lord severely chastened me, but did not condemn me to death. Open for me the gates of triumph, that I may enter to praise the Lord. The is the gateway of God. The righteous shall enter therein.

I praise You for having ganswered me; You have become my deliverance. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone. This is the doing of the Lord it is the marvelous in our sight. This si the day the Lord has made let us exalt and rejoice in it.

Deliver us, God, we implore You. Deliver us, God we implore You.

Prosper us, God, we implore You. Prosper us, God we implore You.

Blessed are those who come in the name of God; we bless you from the House of God. The Lord is God who has given us light; wreathe the festive procession with myrtle as it proceeds to the corners of the altar.

You are my God and I praise You.

You are my God, and I exalt You.

Acclaim the Lord, for God is good; God's love endures forever.

May all creation praise You, Lord our God. May the pious, the righteous who do You will, and all Your people, the House of Israel, join in acclaiming You with joyous song. May they praise, revere, adore, extol, exalt, and sanctify Your glory, our Sovereign. To You it is good to chant praise; to Your glory it is fitting to sing. You are God, from age to age, everlastingly. Praised are You, God, Sovereign acclaimed with songs of praise.
