1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications. 2: Because he hath inclined his ear to me, therefore will I call upon [him] as long as I live. 3: The sorrows of death encompassed me, and the pains of hell came upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4: Then I called upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5: Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yes, our God [is] merciful. 6: The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. 7: Return to thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8: For thou hast delivered my soul from death, my 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 to the LORD [for] all his benefits towards me? 13: I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. 14: I will pay my vows to 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, 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 the LORD. 18: I will pay my vows to 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.
