116:1 I love Yahweh, because he listens to my voice, And my cries for mercy.
116:2 Because he has turned his ear to me, Therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
116:3 The cords of death surrounded me, The pains of Sheol got a hold of me. I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I on the name of Yahweh: "Yahweh, I beg you, deliver my soul."
116:5 Gracious is Yahweh, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.
116:6 Yahweh preserves the simple. I was brought low, and he saved me.
116:7 Return to your rest, my soul, For Yahweh has dealt bountifully with you.
116:8 For you have delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, And my feet from falling.
116:9 I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.
116:10 I believed, therefore I said, "I was greatly afflicted."
116:11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars."
116:12 What will I give to Yahweh for all his benefits toward me?
116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call on the name of Yahweh.
116:14 I will pay my vows to Yahweh, Yes, in the presence of all his people.
116:15 Precious in the sight of Yahweh is the death of his saints.
116:16 Yahweh, truly I am your servant. I am your servant, the son of your handmaid. You have freed me from my chains.
116:17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call on the name of Yahweh.
116:18 I will pay my vows to Yahweh, Yes, in the presence of all his people,
116:19 In the courts of Yahweh's house, In the midst of you, Jerusalem. Praise Yah!
