Psalm 118 and Freedom from other’s opinions

I will not fear. What can man do to me? Where does this confidence come from?


Psalm 118 is a litany of familiar lines. Here are a few of the most well-known:

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; For his steadfast love endures forever. (vs. 1 and 29 – bookending the Psalm)

The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. (v. 14 from Exodus 15:2, the song of Moses)

The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. (vs. 22 quoted in Luke 20:17, Acts 4:11, 1 Peter 2:7 a favorite New Testament reference to Jesus)

This is the day that the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. (v. 24 – the classic cross-stitch Bible verse hanging up in your grandma’s living room in the circle frame – a hoop, I think it’s called)
