Psalm 116 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 I love the Lord, because he listens to my prayers for help. 2 He paid attention to me, so I will call to him for help as long as I live. 3 The ropes of death bound me, and the fear of the grave took hold of me. I was troubled and sad. 4 Then I called out the name of the Lord. I said, "Please, Lord, save me!" 5 The Lord is kind and does what is right; our God is merciful. 6 The Lord watches over the foolish; when I was helpless, he saved me. 7 I said to myself, "Relax, because the Lord takes care of you." 8 Lord, you saved me from death. You stopped my eyes from crying; you kept me from being defeated. 9 So I will walk with the Lord in the land of the living. 10 I believed, so I said, "I am completely ruined." 11 In my distress I said, "All people are liars." 12 What can I give the Lord for all the good things he has given to me? 13 I will lift up the cup of salvation, and I will pray to the Lord. 14 I will give the Lord what I promised in front of all his people. 15 The death of one that belongs to the Lord is precious in his sight. 16 Lord, I am your servant; I am your servant and the son of your female servant. You have freed me from my chains. 17 I will give you an offering to show thanks to you, and I will pray to the Lord. 18 I will give the Lord what I promised in front of all his people, 19 in the Temple courtyards in Jerusalem.
