Psalm 116Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Lift Up the Cup of Salvation
1 I love Adonai,
for He hears my voice, my cries.
2 Because He has turned His ear to me,
I will call on Him all my days.
3 The ropes of death entangled me,
and the torments of Sheol found me.
I found trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the Name of Adonai:
“Adonai, save my soul!”
5 Adonai is gracious and righteous—
yes, our God is compassionate.
6 Adonai protects the simple-hearted.
When I was brought low, He saved me.
7 Return to your rest, my soul,
for Adonai has been good to you.
8 For You delivered my soul from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.
9 I will walk before Adonai
in the lands of the living.
10 I trusted even when I said,
“I am very afflicted”—
11 even when I said in my haste,
“All men are liars.”
12 How can I repay Adonai
for all His bounties to me?
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation,
and call on the Name of Adonai.
14 I will fulfill my vows to Adonai
in the presence of all His people.
15 Precious in the sight of Adonai
is the death of His kedoshim.
16 O Adonai! Surely I am Your servant.
I am Your servant,
the son of Your maidservant.
You have freed me from my bonds.
17 To You I will offer a sacrifice of praise,
and will call on the Name of Adonai.
18 I will fulfill my vows to Adonai
in the presence of all His people,
19 in the courts of the House of Adonai,
in your midst, O Jerusalem. Halleluyah!
