Psalm 116

American Standard Version (ASV)

116 I love Jehovah, because he heareth My voice and my supplications.

Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, Therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

The cords of death compassed me, And the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

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

Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; Yea, our God is merciful.

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

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; For Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee.

For thou hast delivered my soul from death, Mine eyes from tears, And my feet from falling.

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.
