Psalms 116

I love Yahweh—because he heareth my voice, my supplications; Because he hath bowed down his ear unto me, therefore, throughout my days, will I call. The meshes of death encompassed me, and the distresses of hades, came upon me, Peril and sorrow, I found; But, on the Name of Yahweh, I called—I beseech thee, Yahweh, deliver my soul. Gracious is Yahweh and righteous, and, our God, is full of compassion. Yahweh, preserveth the simple, I was brought low, when, to me, he granted salvation. Return, O my soul, to thy rest, For, Yahweh, hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast rescued my soul from death,—mine eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I will walk to and fro before Yahweh, in the lands of life.

10 I believed that I should speak, I, was greatly depressed. 11 I, said in mine alarm, All men, are false! 12 How shall I give back to Yahweh, All his benefits unto me? 13 The cup of salvation, will I lift, and, on the Name of Yahweh, will I call: 14 My vows—to Yahweh, will I pay, Might it be in presence of all his people! 15 Costly in the eyes of Yahweh, is, death, for his men of lovingkindness. 16 I beseech thee, O Yahweh—for, I, am thy servant,—I, am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid, Thou hast loosened my bonds. 17 To thee, will I sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and, on the Name of Yahweh, will I call: 18 My vows—to Yahweh, will I pay, Might it be in the presence of all his people;— 19 In the courts of the house of Yahweh, In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Yah!
