116 I love Jehovah, because he heareth 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 cords of death compassed me, and the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

4 Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

5 Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

6 Jehovah preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me.

7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah 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 Jehovah in the land of the living.

10 I believe, for I will speak: I was greatly afflicted:

11 I said in my haste, all men are liars.

12 What shall I render unto Jehovah for all his benefits toward me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Jehovah.

14 I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, yea, in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints.

16 O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant: I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds.

17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Jehovah.

18 I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, yea, in the presence of all his people,

19 In the courts of Jehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.
