Psalms Chapter 116 - New American Standard Bible

1. ILOVE the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications.

2. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

3. The cords of death encompassed me And the [3] terrors of [2] Sheol [1] came upon me; I found distress and sorrow.

4. Then I called upon the name of the LORD: O LORD, I beseech You, [4] save my life!

5. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate.

6. The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.

7. Return to your rest, O my soul, For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

8. For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling.

9. I shall walk before the LORD In the [5] land of the living.

10. I believed when I said, I am greatly afflicted.

11. I said in my alarm, All men are liars.

12. What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits [6] toward me?

13. I shall lift up the cup of salvation And call upon the name of the LORD.

14. I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people.

15. Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His godly ones.

16. O LORD, [7] surely I am Your servant, I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid, You have loosed my bonds.

17. To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, And call upon the name of the LORD.

18. I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,

19. In the courts of the LORD'S house, In the midst of you, O Jerusalem. [9] Praise [8] the LORD!
