Psalms 116

1. I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.2. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.3. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.4. Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.5. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.6. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.7. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.8. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.9. 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.
