1I have loved, because Jehovah heareth My voice, my supplication,
2Because He hath inclined His ear to me, And during my days I call.
3Compassed me have cords of death, And straits of Sheol have found me, Distress and sorrow I find.
4And in the name of Jehovah I call: I pray Thee, O Jehovah, deliver my soul,
5Gracious [is] Jehovah, and righteous, Yea, our God [is] merciful,
6A preserver of the simple [is] Jehovah, I was low, and to me He giveth salvation.
7Turn back, O my soul, to thy rest, For Jehovah hath conferred benefits on thee.
8For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, my feet from overthrowing.
9I walk habitually before Jehovah In the lands of the living.
10I have believed, for I speak, I--I have been afflicted greatly.
11I said in my haste, `Every man [is] a liar.'
12What do I return to Jehovah? All His benefits [are] upon me.
13The cup of salvation I lift up, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
14My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people.
15Precious in the eyes of Jehovah [is] the death for His saints.
16Cause [it] to come, O Jehovah, for I [am] Thy servant. I [am] Thy servant, son of Thy handmaid, Thou hast opened my bonds.
17To Thee I sacrifice a sacrifice of thanks, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
18My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people,
19In the courts of the house of Jehovah, In thy midst, O Jerusalem, praise ye Jah!
