Psalms 116

117 →
1

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.

2

Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

3

The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.

4

Then I called on the name of the LORD: "O LORD, save me!"

5

The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.

6

The LORD protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.

7

Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.

8

For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,

9

that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

10

I believed; therefore I said, "I am greatly afflicted."

11

And in my dismay I said, "All men are liars."

12

How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?

13

I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.

14

I will fulfill my vows to the LORD 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 your servant; I am your servant, the son of your maidservant; you have freed me from my chains.

17

I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the LORD.

18

I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,

19

in the courts of the house of the LORD - in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.
