Psalms 116

I rejoice that the LORD hath heard the voice of my supplication, That he hath inclined his ear to me and heard me; I will call upon him as long as I live. The snares of death encompassed me, And the pains of the underworld seized upon me; I found distress and sorrow. Then called I upon the LORD: O LORD! deliver me! 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, O my soul! to thy rest! For the LORD hath dealt kindly with thee. For thou hast preserved me from death; Thou hast kept mine eyes from tears, And my feet from falling! I shall walk before the LORD, In the land of the living. 10 I had trust, although I said, "I am grievously afflicted!" 11 I said in my distress, "All men are liars." 12 What shall I render to the LORD For all his benefits to me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of the LORD; 14 I will pay my vows to the LORD, In the presence of all his people. 15 Precious in the eyes of the LORD Is the death of his holy ones. 16 Hear, O LORD! for I am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy 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 to the LORD In the presence of all his people, 19 In the courts of the house of the LORD, In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem! Praise ye the LORD!
