I love Jehovah, for he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications;
For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during [all] my days.
The bands a of death encompassed me, and the anguish b of Sheol took hold of c me; I found trouble and sorrow:
Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: I beseech thee, Jehovah, deliver my soul.
Gracious is Jehovah and righteous; and our God is merciful.
Jehovah keepeth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me.
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee.
For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, my feet from falling.
I will walk before Jehovah in the land d of the living.
I believed, therefore have I spoken. As for me, I was greatly afflicted.
I said in my haste, e All men f are liars.
What shall I render unto Jehovah, [for] all his benefits toward me?
I will take the cup of salvation, g and call upon the name of Jehovah.
I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people.
Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints. h16
Yea, Jehovah! for I am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
I will offer i to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Jehovah.
I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people,
In the courts of Jehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
