116 1 David being in great danger of Saul in the desert of M[…], perceiving the great and inestimable love of God toward him, magnifieth such great mercies, 13 and protesteth that he will be thankful for the same.
1 I [a]love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my prayers.
2 For he hath inclined his ear unto me, when I did call upon him[b]in my days.
3 When the snares of death compassed me, and the griefs of the grave caught me: When I found trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the Name of the Lord, saying, I beseech thee, O Lord, deliver my soul.
5 The Lord is[c]merciful and righteous, and our God is full of compassion.
6 The Lord preserveth the simple: I was in misery, and he saved me.
7 Return unto thy rest, O [d]my soul: for the Lord hath been beneficial unto thee,
8 Because thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9 I shall [e]walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
10 [f]I believed, therefore did I speak: for I was sore troubled.
