Psalms 116

1I love Jehovah because he hears my voice and my supplications. 2Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call as long as I live. 3The cords of death encompassed me, and the pains of Sheol got hold upon me. I found trouble and sorrow. 4Then I called upon the name of Jehovah. O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous. Yea, our God is merciful. 6Jehovah preserves the simple. I was brought low, and he saved me. 7Return to thy rest, O my soul, for Jehovah has dealt bountifully with thee. 8For thou have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling. 9I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living. 10I believed, therefore I have spoken, but I was greatly afflicted. 11I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12What shall I render to Jehovah for all his benefits toward me? 13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Jehovah. 14I will pay my vows to Jehovah, yea, in the presence of all his people. 15Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his sanctified. 16O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant. I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid. Thou have loosed my bonds. 17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Jehovah. 18I will pay my vows to Jehovah, yea, in the presence of all his people, 19in the courts of Jehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.
