The LORD Listens to the Afflicted
Alleluiah.1I loved that [2shall listen to the lord] the voice of my supplication. 2For he leaned his ear to me; and during my days I shall call upon him. 3[3compassed 4me 1The pangs 2of death]; the dangers of Hades found me; [2affliction 3and 4grief 1I found]. 4And the name of the lord I called upon. O lord rescue my soul! 5[3is merciful 1The 2 lord] and just; and our God shows mercy. 6[3is the one guarding 4the 5infants 1The 2 lord]. I was humbled, and he delivered me. 7Return, O my soul, to your rest! for the lord benefited you. 8For he rescued my soul from out of death; my eyes from tears, and my feet from a slip. 9I should be well-pleasing before the lord in the place of the living. 10I trusted, therefore I spoke; but I was humbled exceedingly. 11And I said in my change of state, Every man is a liar. 12What shall I recompense to the lord for all which he recompensed to me? 13The cup of deliverance I shall take; and the name of the lord I shall call upon. 14 My vows to the lord I will render before all his people. 15Esteemed before the lord is the death of his sacred ones. 16O lord I am [2servant 1your]; I am [2servant 1your], and a son of your maidservant. You tore up my bonds. 17To you I shall sacrifice a sacrifice of praise, and [2in 3the name 4of the lord 1I will call]. 18 [2my vows 3to the 4 lord 1I will render] before all his people, 19in the courtyards of the house of the lord, in the midst of you, Jerusalem.
