Psalm 116

1 I love the LORD, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.
3 The sorrows of death encompassed me, and the pains of hell got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I beseech Thee, deliver my soul!"
5 Gracious is the LORD and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6 The LORD preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He helped me.
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul, for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: "I was greatly afflicted."
11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars."
12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all His benefits toward me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the LORD.
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now, in the presence of all His people.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
16 O LORD, truly I am Thy servant; I am Thy servant and the son of Thine handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to Thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all His people,
19 in the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD!
