Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

1 1I love the LORD, because He 2hears My voice and my supplications.
2 Because He has 3inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
3 The 4cords of death encompassed me And the terrors of Sheol came upon me; I found distress and sorrow.
4 Then 5I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I beseech You, 6save my life!"
5 7Gracious is the LORD, and 8righteous; Yes, our God is 9compassionate.
6 The LORD preserves 10the simple; I was 11brought low, and He saved me.
7 Return to your 12rest, O my soul, For the LORD has 13dealt bountifully with you.
8 For You have 14rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling.
9 I shall walk before the LORD In the 15land of the living.
11 I 18said in my alarm, "19All men are liars."
12 What shall I 20render to the LORD For all His 21benefits toward me?
13 I shall lift up the 22cup of salvation And 23call upon the name of the LORD.
14 I shall 24pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be 25in the presence of all His people.
15 26Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His godly ones.
16 O LORD, surely I am 27Your servant, I am Your servant, the 28son of Your handmaid, You have 29loosed my bonds.
17 To You I shall offer 30a sacrifice of thanksgiving, And 31call upon the name of the LORD.
18 I shall 32pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,
19 In the 33courts of the LORD'S house, In the midst of you, O 34Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!
