Psalms 116
JUB
116
1I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.2Because he has inclined his ear unto me, therefore I will call upon him all of my days.3The sorrows of death compassed me and the pains of Sheol found me; I encountered trouble and sorrow.4Then I called upon the name of the Lord, saying, O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.5Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.6The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and he saved me.7Return unto thy rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with thee.8For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.9I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
10I believed, therefore I spoke, and was greatly afflicted;11I said in my haste, All men are liars.12What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me?13I will take the cup of saving health and invoke the name of the Lord.14I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people.15Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his merciful ones.16This is so, O Lord, because I am thy slave; I am thy slave, the son of thine handmaid; thou hast loosed my bonds.17I will offer unto thee the sacrifice of praise and will invoke the name of the Lord.18I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people,19in the courts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
