I love the Lord because He has heard my appeal for mercy.
Because He has turned His ear to me, I will call [out to Him] as long as I live.
The ropes of death were wrapped around me, and the torments of Sheol overcame me; I encountered trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord: "Lord, save me!"
The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate.
The Lord guards the inexperienced; I was helpless, and He saved me.
Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.
For You, [Lord,] rescued me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
I believed, even when I said, "I am severely afflicted."
In my alarm I said, "Everyone is a liar."a12
How can I repay the Lord all the good He has done for me?
I will take the cup of salvation and worshipb the Lord.
I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all His people.
The death of His faithful ones is valuable in the Lord's sight.
Lord, I am indeed Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant. You have loosened my bonds.
I will offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and will worshipc the Lord.
I will fulfill my vows to the Lord, in the very presence of all His people,
in the courts of the Lord's house- within you, Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
