Psalm 116

1 I love the LORD,
Because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,
Therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3 The sorrows of death compassed me,
And the pains of hell gat hold upon me:
I found trouble and sorrow. 4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD;
O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;
Yea, our God is merciful.
6 The LORD preserveth the simple:
I was brought low, and he helped me.
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
For the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
Mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before
The LORD in the land of the living.
10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
11 I said in my haste, all men are liars.

12 What shall I render unto the LORD
For all his benefits toward me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the LORD.
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant;
I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: Thou hast loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And will call upon the name of the LORD.
18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
19 In the courts of the LORD’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.

Praise ye the LORD.
