1: I love Jehovah, because he heareth My voice and my supplications. 2: Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, Therefore will I call [upon him] as long as I live. 3: The cords of death compassed me, And the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4: Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5: Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; Yea, our God is merciful. 6: Jehovah preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. 7: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; For Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8: For thou hast delivered my soul from death, Mine eyes from tears, [And] my feet from falling. 9: I will walk before Jehovah In the land of the living. 10: I believe, for I will speak: I was greatly afflicted: 11: I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12: What shall I render unto Jehovah For all his benefits toward me? 13: I will take the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of Jehovah. 14: I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people. 15: Precious in the sight of Jehovah Is the death of his saints. 16: O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant: I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds. 17: I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of Jehovah. 18: I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people, 19: In the courts of Jehovah's house, In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.
