Psalms 116:1-19

116  I love Jehovah, because he heareth My voice and my supplications. 2  Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, Therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. 3  The cords of death compassed me, And the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4  Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5  Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; Yea, our God is merciful. 6  Jehovah preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. 7  Return unto thy rest, O my soul; For Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8  For thou hast delivered my soul from death, Mine eyes from tears, And my feet from falling. 9  I will walk before Jehovah In the land of the living. 10  I believe, for I will speak: I was greatly afflicted: 11  I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12  What shall I render unto Jehovah For all his benefits toward me? 13  I will take the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of Jehovah. 14  I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people. 15  Precious in the sight of Jehovah Is the death of his saints. 16  O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant: I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds. 17  I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of Jehovah. 18  I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people, 19  In the courts of Jehovah’s house, In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.
