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.
