His steadfast love endures forever (Ps 118:2-118:4)

“Let Israel say.

‘His steadfast love endures forever.’

Let the house of Aaron say.

‘His steadfast love endures forever.’

Let those who fear Yahweh say.

‘His steadfast love endures forever.’”

Here is the strong theme of the enduring steadfast love of Yahweh. Once again we have the distinction between Israel, the house of Aaron, and the more generic those who fear Yahweh. The house of Aaron, or the Levities, have a dominant role to play, but there is no mention of Judah here. This almost seems like a choral response about the love of God.
