Psalm 116:5-9 The Voice (VOICE)
5 The Eternal is full of grace and naturally just;
our God is compassionate and merciful.
6 And the Eternal watches over the naive.
Whenever I was knocked down, He reached down and saved me.
7 O my soul! Return and relax. Come to your true rest,
for the Eternal has showered you with His favor.
8 God, You alone rescued my soul from the grips of death,
my eyes from weeping,
and my feet from slipping.
9 I will come before the Eternal
as long as I journey in the land of the living.

5 The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
6 The Lord protects the unwary;

7 Return to your rest, my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you.

my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling,
9 that I may walk before the Lord
in the land of the living.
