His Love Endures Forever

Psalm 118:14-18 (NIV)

14 The Lord is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.

15 Shouts of joy and victory
    resound in the tents of the righteous:
“The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!
16     The Lord’s right hand is lifted high;
    the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17 I will not die but live,
    and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has chastened me severely,
    but he has not given me over to death.

This Psalm opens with the words:

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Then the Psalmist calls for Israel, the house of Aaron and all those who fear the Lord to say:

“His love endures forever.”

Then he recounts all the reasons as a reminder of why we should remember that God’s love endures forever.

Finally, in verse 29 he declares one more time:
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is Good! His Love Endures FOREVER!
