Psalm 116 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 I love the LORD,1 for he heard my voice; he heard my cry2 for mercy.3 2 Because he turned his ear4 to me, I will call on him as long as I live. 3 The cords of death5 entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. 4 Then I called on the name6 of the LORD: "LORD, save me!7" 5 The LORD is gracious and righteous;8 our God is full of compassion.9 6 The LORD protects the unwary; when I was brought low,10 he saved me.11 7 Return to your rest,12 my soul, for the LORD has been good13 to you. 8 For you, LORD, have delivered me14 from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, 9 that I may walk before the LORD15 in the land of the living.16 10 I trusted17 in the LORD when I said, "I am greatly afflicted";18 11 in my alarm I said, "Everyone is a liar."19 12 What shall I return to the LORD for all his goodness20 to me? 13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name21 of the LORD. 14 I will fulfill my vows22 to the LORD in the presence of all his people. 15 Precious in the sight23 of the LORD is the death of those faithful to him.24 16 Truly I am your servant, LORD;25 I am your servant, as was my mother before me;26 you have loosed my bonds of affliction.27 17 I will sacrifice a thank offering28 to you and call on the name of the LORD. 18 I will fulfill my vows29 to the LORD in the presence of all his people, 19 in the courts30 of the house of the LORD-- in your midst, Jerusalem.31 Praise the LORD.a
