Psalm 117 (118):1,5-6,8,17-18.
[Acknowledge] Have faith in the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever.
In my trouble I called upon the Lord and the Lord heard me, and enlarged me.
The Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man can do unto me.
It is good to confide in the Lord, rather than to have confidence in man.
I shall not die, but live and shall declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord chastising hath chastised me, but he hath not delivered me over to death.
