8 Better to take refuge in Jehovah than to trust in man,
9 Better to take refuge in Jehovah, Than to trust in princes.
10 All nations have compassed me about, In the name of Jehovah I surely cut them off.
11 They have compassed me about, Yea, they have compassed me about, In the name of Jehovah I surely cut them off.

17 I do not die, but live, And recount the works of Jah,
18 Jah hath sorely chastened me, And to death hath not given me up.
19 Open ye to me gates of righteousness, I enter into them -- I thank Jah.
20 This [is] the gate to Jehovah, The righteous enter into it.
21 I thank Thee, for Thou hast answered me, And art to me for salvation.
22 A stone the builders refused Hath become head of a corner.
23 From Jehovah hath this been, It [is] wonderful in our eyes,
24 This [is] the day Jehovah hath made, We rejoice and are glad in it.
25 I beseech Thee, O Jehovah, save, I pray Thee, I beseech Thee, O Jehovah, prosper, I pray Thee.
26 Blessed [is] he who is coming In the name of Jehovah, We blessed you from the house of Jehovah,
27 God [is] Jehovah, and He giveth to us light, Direct ye the festal-sacrifice with cords, Unto the horns of the altar.
28 My God Thou [art], and I confess Thee, My God, I exalt Thee.
29 Give ye thanks to Jehovah, For good, for to the age, [is] His kindness!
