Chapter 116

1


 

  I have given my love to the Lord, because he has given ear to the voice of my cry and my prayer.  

 

 


2


 

  He has let my request come before him, and I will make my prayer to him all my days.  

 

 


3


 

  The nets of death were round me, and the pains of the underworld had me in their grip; I was full of trouble and sorrow.  

 

 


4


 

  Then I made my prayer to the Lord, saying, O Lord, take my soul out of trouble.  

 

 


5


 

  The Lord is full of grace and righteousness; truly, he is a God of mercy.  

 

 


6


 

  The Lord keeps the simple; I was made low, and he was my saviour.  

 

 


7


 

  Come back to your rest, O my soul; for the Lord has given you your reward.  

 

 


8


 

  You have taken my soul from the power of death, keeping my eyes from weeping, and my feet from falling.  

 

 


9


 

  I will go before the Lord in the land of the living.  

 

 


10


 

  I still had faith, though I said, I am in great trouble;  

 

 


11


 

  Though I said in my fear, All men are false.  

 

 


12


 

  What may I give to the Lord for all the good things which he has done for me?  

 

 


13


 

  I will take the cup of salvation, and give praise to the name of the Lord.  

 

 


14


 

  I will make the offering of my oath to the Lord, even before all his people.  

 

 


15


 

  Dear in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints.  

 

 


16


 

  O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of her who is your servant; by you have my cords been broken.  

 

 


17


 

  I will give an offering of praise to you, and make my prayer in the name of the Lord.  

 

 


18


 

  I will make the offerings of my oath, even before all his people;  

 

 


19


 

  In the Lord's house, even in Jerusalem. Praise be to the Lord.
