he has preserved our lives1 and kept our feet from slipping.210
For you, O God, tested3 us; you refined us like silver.411
You brought us into prison5 and laid burdens6 on our backs.
You let men ride over our heads;7 we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.813
I will come to your temple with burnt offerings9 and fulfill my vows10 to you--
vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.11 "Selah"
Come and listen,12 all you who fear God; let me tell13 you what he has done for me.
I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;1419
but God has surely listened and heard my voice15 in prayer.
