Psalm 116:1–11

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

1 aI love the Lord, because He bhears

My voice and my supplications.

2 Because He has ainclined His ear to me,

Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

3 The acords of death encompassed me

And the 1terrors of 2Sheol 3came upon me;

I found distress and sorrow.

4 Then aI called upon the name of the Lord:

“O Lord, I beseech You, 1bsave my life!”

5 aGracious is the Lord, and brighteous;

Yes, our God is ccompassionate.

6 The Lord preserves athe simple;

I was bbrought low, and He saved me.

7 Return to your arest, O my soul,

For the Lord has bdealt bountifully with you.

8 For You have arescued my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

My feet from stumbling.

9 I shall walk before the Lord

In the 1aland of the living.

10 I abelieved when I said,

“I am bgreatly afflicted.”

11 I asaid in my alarm,

bAll men are liars.”
