Psalms 116

PSALM 116.

I love the  Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
as long…: Heb. in my days
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
gat…: Heb. found me
Then called I upon the name of the  Lord; O  Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the  Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The  Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the  Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the  Lord in the land of the living. 10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12 What shall I render unto the  Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the  Lord. 14 I will pay my vows unto the  Lord now in the presence of all his people. 15 Precious in the sight of the  Lord is the death of his saints. 16 O  Lord, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. 17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the  Lord. 18 I will pay my vows unto the  Lord now in the presence of all his people, 19 In the courts of the  Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the  Lord.
