my appeal for mercy. # Ps 18:1; 66:19
2Because He has turned His ear to me,
I will call out to Him as long as I live. # Ps 17:6; 40:1

and the torments of Sheol overcame me;
I encountered trouble and sorrow. # Ps 18:4-5

“Yahweh, save me! ” # Ps 18:6; 118:5
5The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is compassionate. # Ex 34:6; Neh 9:17; Ps 112:4

I was helpless, and He saved me. # Ps 19:7; 79:8; 142:6

for the Lord has been good to you. # Ps 13:6; Jr 6:16
8For You, Lord, rescued me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling. # Ps 49:15; 56:13
9I will walk before the Lord
in the land of the living. # Ps 27:13
10I believed, even when I said,
“I am severely afflicted.” # 2Co 4:13
11In my alarm I said,
“Everyone is a liar.” # Ps 31:22; 62:9; Rm 3:4
12How can I repay the Lord
for all the good He has done for me? # 2Ch 32:25; 1Th 3:9
13I will take the cup of salvation
and call on the name of Yahweh. # Ps 16:5; 105:1
14I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all His people. # Ps 22:25; 50:14
15The death of His faithful ones
is valuable in the Lord’s sight. # Ps 72:14
16Lord, I am indeed Your servant;
I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant.
You have loosened my bonds. # Jb 12:18; Ps 86:16; 107:14
17I will offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of Yahweh. # Lv 7:12; Ps 50:14
18I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all His people, # Ps 22:25; 50:14
19in the courts of the Lord’s house —
within you, Jerusalem. # Ps 96:8; 102:21
