11 In my alarm I said, "Everyone is a liar." 11 And in my dismay I said, "All men are liars."
12 How can I repay the Lord all the good He has done for me? 12 How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?

16 Lord, I am indeed Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant. You have loosened my bonds. 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 offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and will worship the Lord. 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 very presence of all His people, 18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the Lord's house- within you, Jerusalem. Hallelujah! 19 in the courts of the house of the LORD-- in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.
