Salmos 116

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 When the snares of death copassed me, and the griefes of the graue caught me: when I founde trouble and sorowe.

4 Then I called vpon the Name of the Lord, saying, I beseech thee, O Lord, deliuer my soule.

5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God [is] merciful.

6 The Lorde preserueth the simple: I was in miserie and he saued me.

7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

8 Because thou hast deliuered my soule from death, mine eyes from teares, and my feete 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 vnto the Lord for all his benefites toward me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

14 I will pay my vowes vnto the Lorde, euen nowe in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.

16 Beholde, Lord: for I am thy seruant, I am thy seruant, and the sonne of thine handmaide: thou hast broken my bondes.

17 I will offer to thee a sacrifice of prayse, and will call vpon 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 courtes of ye Lords house, euen in the middes of thee, O Ierusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
