Psalm 116 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Psalm 116

I love the Lord
because he heard my plea for mercy,
and listened to me.
As long as I live, I will call to him when I need help.
The ropes of death tightened around me,
the snares of Sheol confronted me.
I was confronted with trouble and sorrow.
I called on the name of the Lord,
“Please Lord, rescue my life!”
The Lord is merciful and fair;
our God is compassionate.
The Lord protects the untrained;
I was in serious trouble and he delivered me.
Rest once more, my soul,
for the Lord has vindicated you.
Yes, Lord, you rescued my life from death,
and kept my feet from stumbling.
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!
