Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 116, New English Translation

Psalm 116


   1 I love the LORD because he heard my plea for mercy,
   2 and listened to me. As long as I live, I will call to him when I need help.
   3 The ropes of death tightened around me, the snares of Sheol confronted me. I was confronted with trouble and sorrow.
   4 I called on the name of the LORD, "Please LORD, rescue my life!"
   5 The LORD is merciful and fair; our God is compassionate.
   6 The LORD protects the untrained; I was in serious trouble and he delivered me.
   7 Rest once more, my soul, for the LORD has vindicated you.
   8 Yes, LORD, you rescued my life from death, and kept my feet from stumbling.
   9 I will serve the LORD in the land of the living.
   10 I had faith when I said, "I am severely oppressed."
   11 I rashly declared, "All men are liars."
   12 How can I repay the LORD for all his acts of kindness to me?
   13 I will celebrate my deliverance, and call on the name of the LORD.
   14 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD before all his people.
   15 The LORD values the lives of his faithful followers.
   16 Yes, LORD! I am indeed your servant; I am your lowest slave. You saved me from death.
   17 I will present a thank offering to you, and call on the name of the LORD.
   18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD before all his people,
   19 in the courts of the LORD's temple, in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!
