Psalm 116 116 Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death 1I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. 2Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. 3The [Q]pains of death surrounded me, And the [R]pangs of Sheol [S]laid hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow. 4Then I called upon the name of the Lord: “O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!” 5Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful. 6The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. 7Return to your rest, O my soul, For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. 8For You have delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, And my feet from falling. 9I will walk before the Lord In the land of the living. 10I believed, therefore I spoke, “I am greatly afflicted.” 11I said in my haste, “All men are liars.” 12What shall I render to the Lord For all His benefits toward me? 13I will take up the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of the Lord. 14I will pay my vows to the Lord Now in the presence of all His people. 15Precious in the sight of the Lord Is the death of His saints. 16O Lord, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have loosed my bonds. 17I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of the Lord. 18I will pay my vows to the Lord Now in the presence of all His people, 19In the courts of the Lord’s house, In the midst of you, O Jerusalem. [T]Praise the Lord!
