Psalm 116 GNT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I love the Lord, because he hears me; he listens to my prayers. 1 I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
2 He listens to me every time I call to him. 2 Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
3 The danger of death was all around me; the horrors of the grave closed in on me; I was filled with fear and anxiety. 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 to the Lord, "I beg you, Lord, save me!" 4 Then I called on the name of the LORD: "O LORD, save me!"
5 The Lord is merciful and good; our God is compassionate. 5 The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
6 The Lord protects the helpless; when I was in danger, he saved me. 6 The LORD protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.
7 Be confident, my heart, because the Lord has been good to me. 7 Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
8 The Lord saved me from death; he stopped my tears and kept me from defeat. 8 For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,
9 And so I walk in the presence of the Lord in the world of the living. 9 that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10 I kept on believing, even when I said, "I am completely crushed," 10 I believed; therefore I said, "I am greatly afflicted."
11 even when I was afraid and said, "No one can be trusted." 11 And in my dismay I said, "All men are liars."
12 What can I offer the Lord for all his goodness to me? 12 How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?
13 I will bring a wine offering to the Lord, to thank him for saving me. 13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.
14 In the assembly of all his people I will give him what I have promised. 14 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.
15 How painful it is to the Lord when one of his people dies! 15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16 I am your servant, Lord; I serve you just as my mother did. You have saved me from death. 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 give you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and offer my prayer to you. 17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the LORD.
18 In the assembly of all your people, in the sanctuary of your Temple in Jerusalem, I will give you what I have promised. Praise the Lord! 18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,
19 19 in the courts of the house of the LORD-- in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.
