PSALM 116

« Psalm 115 | Psalm 116 | Psalm 117 »

I Love the Lord
116:1
I love the Lord, because he has heard
my voice and my pleas for mercy.
2
Because he inclined his ear to me,
therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
3
The snares of death encompassed me;
the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;
I suffered distress and anguish.
4
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!”

5
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
our God is merciful.
6
The Lord preserves the simple;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
7
Return, O my soul, to your rest;
for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

8
For you have delivered my soul from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling;
9
I will walk before the Lord
in the land of the living.

10
I believed, even when I spoke:
“I am greatly afflicted”;
11
I said in my alarm,
“All mankind are liars.”

12
What shall I render to the Lord
for all his benefits to me?
13
I will lift up the cup of salvation
and call on the name of the Lord,
14
I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people.

15
Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his saints.
16
O Lord, I am your servant;
I am your servant, the son of your maidservant.
You have loosed my bonds.
17
I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of the Lord.
18
I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people,
19
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
in your midst, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!
