116 I love Jehovah, because he hearsmy suppliant voice, 2 Because he has bent his ear to me,and through my lifetime I will call. 3 The cords of death have enclosed meand the grip of the grave has caught me;I encounter distress and sorrow; 4 But on Jehovah’s name I call:ah, Jehovah, bring my life through. 5 Kind is Jehovah, and true to the right,and our God is tenderhearted. 6 Jehovah watches over simple people;I was poor, and me he saves. 7 Come back to your resting, my soul,because Jehovah has done you a good turn. 8 For you have rescued my life from death,my eyes from tears, and my feet from losing their hold; 9 I am walking before Jehovahin the lands of the living. 10 I believe while I speak;I have had a very hard time, 11 I have thought in my alarm“All men are shamming”; 12 What return shall I make to Jehovahfor all his dealings with me? 13 I will lift a cup of salvationand proclaim Jehovah’s name, 14 Will discharge my vows to Jehovahin the presence of all his people. 15 Death for the men of his friendshipis a serious matter in Jehovah’s view. 16 Ah, Jehovah, for I am your servant,I am your servant, your bondwoman’s son,you have unfastened my fetters. 17 To you I will sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgivingand proclaim Jehovah’s name, 18 Will discharge my vows to Jehovahin the presence of all his people, 19 In the courts of Jehovah’s house,within you, Jerusalem.
