Tehillim (Psalms) 116
1I love יהוה, because He has heard my voice, my pleas.
2Because He has inclined His ear to me, And I shall call throughout my days.
3The cords of death were around me, And the pains of She’ol came upon me; I found distress and sorrow.
4Then I called upon the Name of יהוה, “O יהוה, I pray to You, deliver my being!”
5יהוה shows favour and is righteous; And our Elohim is compassionate.
6יהוה guards the simple; I was brought low, but He saved me.
7Return to your rest, O my being, For יהוה has treated you well.
8For You have delivered my being from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from falling.
9I shall walk before יהוה in the land of the living.
10I have believed, for I speak; I have been greatly afflicted.
11I said in my haste, “All men are liars.”
12What shall I return to יהוה? All His bounties are upon me.
13I lift up the cup of deliverance, And call upon the Name of יהוה.
14I pay my vows to יהוה Now in the presence of all His people.
15Precious in the eyes of יהוה Is the death of His lovingly-committed ones.
16O יהוה, I am truly Your servant, I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant; You have loosed my bonds.
17I slaughter You a slaughtering of thanksgiving, And call upon the Name of יהוה.
18I pay my vows to יהוה In the presence of all His people,
19In the courts of the House of יהוה, In your midst, O Yerushalayim. Praise Yah!
