Psalm 116
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1I have loved, because YHWH hears My voice, my supplication,

2Because He has inclined His ear to me, || And during my days I call.

3Cords of death have surrounded me, || And straits of Sheol have found me, || I find distress and sorrow.

4And in the Name of YHWH I call: Ah, now, O YHWH, deliver my soul,

5YHWH [is] gracious, and righteous, || Indeed, our God [is] merciful,

6YHWH [is] a preserver of the simple, || I was low, and He gives salvation to me.

7Return, O my soul, to your rest, || For YHWH has conferred benefits on you.

8For You have delivered my soul from death, || My eyes from tears, my feet from overthrowing.

9I habitually walk before YHWH || In the lands of the living.

10I have believed, for I speak, || I have been greatly afflicted.

11I said in my haste, “Every man [is] a liar.”

12What do I return to YHWH? All His benefits [are] on me.

13I lift up the cup of salvation, || And in the Name of YHWH I call.

14Let me complete my vows to YHWH, || Now, before all His people.

15Precious in the eyes of YHWH [is] the death of His saints.

16Ah, now, O YHWH, for I [am] Your servant; I [am] Your servant, son of Your handmaid; You have opened my bonds.

17I sacrifice a sacrifice of thanks to You, || And in the Name of YHWH I call.

18Let me complete my vows to YHWH, || Now, before all His people,

19In the courts of the house of YHWH, || In your midst, O Jerusalem, praise YAH!
