and my prayer for mercy.
I will pray as long as I have breath!
the terrors of the grave* overtook me.
I saw only trouble and sorrow.
“Please, Lord, save me!”
So merciful, this God of ours!
I was facing death, and he saved me.
for the Lord has been good to me.
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.
as I live here on earth!
“I am deeply troubled, Lord.”
“These people are all liars!”
116:3 Hebrew of Sheol.
