Chapter 116

116:1 I love that the Lord should hear my voice and my supplications.

116:2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him all my days.

116:3 The cords of death compassed me, and the straits of the nether-world got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow.

116:4 But I called upon the name of the Lord: 'I beseech thee, O the Lord, deliver my soul.'

116:5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is compassionate.

116:6 the Lord preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.

116:7 Return, O my soul, unto Thy rest; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.

116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

116:9 I shall walk before the Lord in the lands of the living.

116:10 I trusted even when I spoke: 'I am greatly afflicted.'

116:11 I said in my haste: 'All men are liars.'

116:12 How can I repay unto the Lord all His bountiful dealings toward me?

116:13 I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.

116:14 My vows will I pay unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all His people.

116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.

116:16 I beseech Thee, O the Lord, for I am Thy servant; I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bands.

116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.

116:18 I will pay my vows unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all His people;

116:19 In the courts of the Lord'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah.
