1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard 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 sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4: Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5: Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 6: The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. 7: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD 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 the LORD in the land of the living. 10: I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11: I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12: What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13: I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. 14: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. 15: Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. 16: O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. 17: I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD. 18: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people, 19: In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
