I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,(A)
    and I have been saved from my enemies.(B)
The cords of death(C) entangled me;
    the torrents(D) of destruction overwhelmed me.
The cords of the grave coiled around me;
    the snares of death(E) confronted me.

In my distress(F) I called to the Lord;(G)
    I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;(H)
    my cry came(I) before him, into his ears.

    but the Lord was my support.(E)
19 He brought me out into a spacious place;(F)
    he rescued me because he delighted in me.(G)
