Chapter 116

1

 I have given my love to the Lord, because he has given ear to the voice of my cry and my prayer. 

 


2

 He has let my request come before him, and I will make my prayer to him all my days. 

 


3

 The nets of death were round me, and the pains of the underworld had me in their grip; I was full of trouble and sorrow. 

 


4

 Then I made my prayer to the Lord, saying, O Lord, take my soul out of trouble. 

 


5

 The Lord is full of grace and righteousness; truly, he is a God of mercy. 

 


6

 The Lord keeps the simple; I was made low, and he was my saviour. 

 


7

 Come back to your rest, O my soul; for the Lord has given you your reward. 

 


8

 You have taken my soul from the power of death, keeping my eyes from weeping, and my feet from falling. 

 


9

 I will go before the Lord in the land of the living. 

 


10

 I still had faith, though I said, I am in great trouble; 

 


11

 Though I said in my fear, All men are false. 

 


12

 What may I give to the Lord for all the good things which he has done for me? 

 


13

 I will take the cup of salvation, and give praise to the name of the Lord. 

 


14

 I will make the offering of my oath to the Lord, even before all his people. 

 


15

 Dear in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. 

 


16

 O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of her who is your servant; by you have my cords been broken. 

 


17

 I will give an offering of praise to you, and make my prayer in the name of the Lord. 

 


18

 I will make the offerings of my oath, even before all his people; 

 


19

 In the Lord's house, even in Jerusalem. Praise be to the Lord.
