1
I have loved, because Jehovah heareth My voice, my supplication,
2
Because He hath inclined His ear to me, And during my days I call.
3
Compassed me have cords of death, And straits of Sheol have found me, Distress and sorrow I find.
4
And in the name of Jehovah I call: I pray Thee, O Jehovah, deliver my soul,
5
Gracious [is] Jehovah, and righteous, Yea, our God [is] merciful,
6
A preserver of the simple [is] Jehovah, I was low, and to me He giveth salvation.
7
Turn back, O my soul, to thy rest, For Jehovah hath conferred benefits on thee.
8
For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, my feet from overthrowing.
9
I walk habitually before Jehovah In the lands of the living.
10
I have believed, for I speak, I — I have been afflicted greatly.
11
I said in my haste, `Every man [is] a liar.'
12
What do I return to Jehovah? All His benefits [are] upon me.
13
The cup of salvation I lift up, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
14
My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people.
15
Precious in the eyes of Jehovah [is] the death for His saints.
16
Cause [it] to come, O Jehovah, for I [am] Thy servant.
I [am] Thy servant, son of Thy handmaid, Thou hast opened my bonds.
17
To Thee I sacrifice a sacrifice of thanks, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
18
My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people,
19
In the courts of the house of Jehovah, In thy midst, O Jerusalem, praise ye Jah!
