Psalm 116
Berean Standard Bible Par ▾ 

The LORD Has Heard My Voice

1I love the LORD, for He has heard my voice—

my appeal for mercy.

2Because He has inclined His ear to me,

I will call on Him as long as I live.

3The ropes of death entangled me;

the anguish of Sheol overcame me;

I was confronted by trouble and sorrow.

4Then I called on the name of the LORD:

“O LORD, deliver my soul!”

5The LORD is gracious and righteous;

our God is full of compassion.

6The LORD preserves the simplehearted;

I was helpless, and He saved me.

7Return to your rest, O my soul,

for the LORD has been good to you.

8For You have delivered my soul from death,

my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.

9I will walk before the LORD

in the land of the living.

10I believed, therefore I said,a

“I am greatly afflicted.”

11In my alarm I said,

“All men are liars!”

12How can I repay the LORD

for all His goodness to me?

13I will lift the cup of salvation

and call on the name of the LORD.

14I will fulfill my vows to the LORD

in the presence of all His people.

15Precious in the sight of the LORD

is the death of His saints.

16Truly, O LORD, I am Your servant;

I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;

You have broken my bonds.

17I will offer to You a sacrifice of thanksgiving

and call on the name of the LORD.

18I will fulfill my vows to the LORD

in the presence of all His people,

19in the courts of the LORD’s house,

in your midst, O Jerusalem.
