Psalm 116

1  I love Jehovah, for he hath heard my voice and my supplications; 2  For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during all my days. 3  The bands of death encompassed me, and the anguish of Sheol took hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow: 4  Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: I beseech thee, Jehovah, deliver my soul. 5  Gracious is Jehovah and righteous; and our God is merciful. 6  Jehovah keepeth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. 7  Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8  For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, my feet from falling. 9  I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living.

10  I believed, therefore have I spoken. As for me, I was greatly afflicted. 11  I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12  What shall I render unto Jehovah, for all his benefits toward me? 13  I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Jehovah. 14  I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people. 15  Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints. 16  Yea, Jehovah! for I am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. 17  I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Jehovah. 18  I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people, 19  In the courts of Jehovah’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
