116 I do love, because Jehovah hears*+ My voice, my entreaties.*+ 2 For he has inclined his ear to me,+ And throughout my days I shall call.+ 3 The ropes of death encircled me+ And the distressing circumstances of Sheʹol themselves found me.+ Distress and grief I kept finding.+ 4 But upon the name of Jehovah I proceeded to call:+ “Ah, Jehovah, do provide my soul with escape!”+ 5 Jehovah is gracious and righteous;+ And our God is One showing mercy.+ 6 Jehovah is guarding the inexperienced ones.+ I was impoverished, and he proceeded to save even me.+ 7 Return to your resting-place, O my soul,+ For Jehovah himself has acted appropriately toward you.+ 8 For you have rescued my soul from death,+ My eye from tears, my foot from stumbling.+ 9 I will walk+ before Jehovah in the lands of those living.+ 10* I had faith,+ for I proceeded to speak.+ I myself was very much afflicted. 11 I, for my part, said, when I became panicky:+ “Every man* is a liar.”+ 12 What shall I repay to Jehovah+ For all his benefits to me?+ 13 The cup of grand salvation+ I shall take up, And on the name of Jehovah I shall call.+ 14 My vows I shall pay to Jehovah,+ Yes, in front of all his people. 15 Precious in the eyes of Jehovah Is the death of his loyal ones.+ 16 Ah, now, O Jehovah,+ For I am your servant.+ I am your servant, the son of your slave girl.+ You have loosened my bands.+ 17 To you I shall offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving,+ And on the name of Jehovah I shall call.+ 18 My vows I shall pay to Jehovah,+ Yes, in front of all his people,+ 19 In the courtyards of the house of Jehovah,+ In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.+ Praise Jah, YOU people!*+
