View Psalms 116 in the note window.

116:1 I a love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications.

    (a) He grants that no pleasure is so great as to feel God's help in our need, neither that anything more stirs up our love toward him.
116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon [him] b as long as I live.
    (b) That is in convenient time to seek help, which was when he was in distress.
116:5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God [is] c merciful.
    (c) He shows forth the fruit of his love in calling on him, confessing him to be just and merciful and to help them who are destitute of aid and counsel.
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O d my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
    (d) Which was disturbed before, now rest on the Lord, for he has been beneficial towards you.
116:9 I will e walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
    (e) The Lord will preserve me and save my life.
116:10 f I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
    (f) I felt all these things, and therefore was moved by faith to confess them, (2Co 4:13).

116:11 I said in my g haste, All men [are] liars.

    (g) In my great distress I thought God would not regard man, who is but lies and vanity, yet I overcame this temptation and felt the contrary.
116:13 I will h take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
    (h) In the Law they used to make a banquet when they gave solemn thanks to God, and to take the cup and drink in sign of thanksgiving.
116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the i death of his saints.
    (i) I perceive that God has a care over his, so that he both disposes their death, and takes an account.
116:18 I will pay my k vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
    (k) I will thank him for his benefits, for that is a just payment, to confess that we owe all to God.
