Psalms 116

The LORD Has Heard My Voice

I love the LORD, for He has heard my voice— my appeal for mercy. Because He has inclined His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. The ropes of death entangled me, and the anguish of Sheol overcame me; I was confronted by trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, deliver my soul!” The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD preserves the simplehearted; I was helpless, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living. 10  I believed, therefore I have spoken: “I am greatly afflicted.” 11  In my alarm I said, “All men [are] liars!” 12  How can I repay the LORD for all His goodness to me? 13  I will lift the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. 14  I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all His people. 15  Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of His saints. 16  Truly, O LORD, I [am] Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have released my bonds. 17  I will offer to You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD. 18  I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all His people, 19  in the courts of the LORD’s house, in your midst, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
Or Hallelu Yah, meaning Praise the LORD
