Psalms 116

1 I love LORD because he hears my voice and my supplications.

2 Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call as long as I live.

3 The cords of death encompassed me, and the pains of Sheol got hold upon me. I found trouble and sorrow.

4 Then I called upon the name of LORD. O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

5 Gracious is LORD, and righteous. Yea, our God is merciful.

6 LORD preserves the simple. I was brought low, and he saved me.

7 Return to thy rest, O my soul, for LORD has dealt bountifully with thee.

8 For thou have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.

9 I will walk before LORD in the land of the living.

10 I believed, therefore I have spoken, but I was greatly afflicted.

11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.

12 What shall I render to LORD for all his benefits toward me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of LORD.

14 I will pay my vows to LORD, yea, in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of LORD is the death of his sanctified.

16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant. I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid. Thou have loosed my bonds.

17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of LORD.

18 I will pay my vows to LORD, yea, in the presence of all his people,

19 in the courts of LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye LORD.
