Psalm 116

1 I love Jehovah Because he hears my voice, my pleas for help.

2 For he inclines his ear to me, And I will call on him as long as I live.

3 The ropes of death encircled me; The Grave had me in its grip. I was overcome by distress and grief.

4 But I called on the name of Jehovah: “O Jehovah, rescue me!”

5 Jehovah is compassionate and righteous; Our God is merciful.

6 Jehovah is guarding the inexperienced. I was brought low, and he saved me.

7 Let my soul rest once again, For Jehovah has dealt kindly with me.

8 You have rescued me from death, My eye from tears, my foot from stumbling.

9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living.

10 I had faith, for I spoke; I was greatly afflicted.

11 As for me, I panicked and said: “Every man is a liar.”

12 With what will I repay Jehovah For all the good he has done for me?

13 I will take up the cup of salvation, And I will call on the name of Jehovah.

14 I will pay my vows to Jehovah In the presence of all his people.

15 Costly in the eyes of Jehovah Is the death of his loyal ones.

16 I beg you, O Jehovah, For I am your servant. I am your servant, the son of your slave girl. You have freed me from my bonds.

17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving; I will call on the name of Jehovah.

18 I will pay my vows to Jehovah In the presence of all his people,

19 In the courtyards of the house of Jehovah, In your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise Jah!
