“I called to the Lord, out of my distress,
and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
and thou didst hear my voice.

from thy presence;
how shall I again look
upon thy holy temple?’
the deep was round about me;
weeds were wrapped about my head
I went down to the land
whose bars closed upon me for ever;
yet thou didst bring up my life from the Pit,

and my prayer came to thee,
into thy holy temple.
forsake their true loyalty.
will sacrifice to thee;
what I have vowed I will pay.
Deliverance belongs to the Lord!”
