Psalm 118 is YAHSHUA speaking to believers about YAH and so much more

Psalm 118 teaches many things. YHVH’s full Name is used throughout but also the shorter more personal YAH is used. This is important and it is hidden in most translations which render both as LORD. In this Psalm it seems YAH is used in an  intimate way and YHVH more formally such as when YAHSHUA is victorious in the Name of YHVH.

This is another amazing Psalm that reveals so much and agrees with what we learn from other Psalms and all of Scripture about YAHSHUA.

Green is for YAH

Red is for YAHSHUA

Blue is for believers

yellow is for bad

Psalm 118
(Son to believers about Father)
118:1 Give thanks to YHVH, for He is good,
for His mercy endures forever.
118:2 Let Israel now say
that His mercy endures forever.
118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say
that His mercy endures forever.
118:4 Now let those who fear YHVH say
that His mercy endures forever.

(YAHSHUA depends on YAH)
118:5 Out of My distress, I called on YAH.
YAH answered Me with freedom.
118:6 YHVH is on My side. I will not be afraid.
What can man do to Me?
118:7 YHVH is on My side among those who help Me.
Therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate Me.
118:8 It is better to take refuge in YHVH,
than to put confidence in man.
118:9 It is better to take refuge in YHVH,
than to put confidence in princes.

(YAHSHUA will be victorious in the Name of YHVH)
118:10 All the nations surrounded Me,
but in the Name of YHVH, I cut them off.
118:11 they surrounded Me, yes, they surrounded Me.
In the Name of YHVH I indeed cut them off.
118:12 they surrounded Me like bees.
they are quenched like the burning thorns.
In the Name of YHVH I cut them off.
118:13 You pushed Me back hard, to make Me fall,
but YHVH helped Me.
118:14 YAH is My Strength and Song.

(The word translated Salvation in the next verses is His Name YAHSHUA)
He has become My Salvation (YAHSHUA).
118:15 The voice of rejoicing and Salvation (YAHSHUA)
is in the tents of the Righteous.

(YAHSHUA as YAH’s Right Hand)
“The Right Hand of YHVH does valiantly.
118:16 The Right Hand of YHVH is Exalted!
The Right Hand of YHVH does valiantly!”

(YAHSHUA expressing His faith that He will live according to YAH’s promise)

118:17 I will not die, but live,
and declare YAH’s works.

(YAH punished YAHSHUA for us but raised Him back to life because of His obedience to the Law in giving His life to save us)
118:18 YAH has punished Me severely,
but He has not given Me over to death.
118:19 Open to Me the gates of righteousness.
I will enter into them.
I will give thanks to YAH.
118:20 This is the Gate of YHVH;
The Righteous will enter into It.
118:21 I will give thanks to You, for You have answered Me,
and have become My Salvation (YAHSHUA).

(YAHSHUA quotes this verse in the Gospels as being about Him.)
118:22 The Stone which the builders rejected
has become the Head of the Corner.

(Holy Spirit speaking to YAH on our behalf)
118:23 This is YHVH’s doing.
It is marvelous in our eyes.
118:24 This is the day that YHVH has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it!
118:25 Save us now, we beg You, YHVH!
YHVH, we beg You, send prosperity now.

(YAHSHUA is He Who comes in the Name of YHVH)
118:26 Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of YHVH!
We have blessed You out of the house of YHVH.

(YAHSHUA is the Light of the world as He told us)
118:27 ‘El is YHVH, and He has given us Light.
Bind the Sacrifice with cords,
even to the horns of the altar.

(YAHSHUA praises YAH and exalts Him)
118:28 You are My ‘El, and I will give thanks to You.
You are My ‘Elohiym, I will exalt You.
118:29 Oh give thanks to YHVH, for He is Good,
for His mercy endures forever.
