PSALMS - Chapter 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 compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
4 - Then called I 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.
