Psalm 116

1 I love the LORD because he hears my voice, my pleas for mercy.

2 I will call on him as long as I live because he turns his ear toward me.

3 The ropes of death became tangled around me. The horrors of the grave took hold of me. I experienced pain and agony.

4 But I kept calling on the name of the LORD: "Please, LORD, rescue me!"

5 The LORD is merciful and righteous. Our God is compassionate.

6 The LORD protects defenseless people. When I was weak, he saved me.

7 Be at peace again, my soul, because the LORD has been good to you.

8 You saved me from death. You saved my eyes from tears [and] my feet from stumbling.

9 I will walk in the LORD's presence in this world of the living.

10 I kept my faith even when I said, "I am suffering terribly."

11 I also said when I was panic-stricken, "Everyone is undependable."

12 How can I repay the LORD for all the good that he has done for me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.

14 I will keep my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful ones.

16 O LORD, I am indeed your servant. I am your servant, the son of your female servant. You have freed me from my chains.

17 I will bring a song of thanksgiving to you as a sacrifice. I will call on the name of the LORD.

18 I will keep my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,

19 in the courtyards of the LORD's house, in the middle of Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
