1 I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice [and] my supplications.
2 Because he has inclined his ear unto me, therefore I will call upon [him] all of my days.
3 The sorrows of death compassed me and the pains of Sheol found me; I encountered trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD, [saying], O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; [yea], our God [is] merciful.
6 The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and he saved me.
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with thee.
8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine 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 I spoke, and was greatly afflicted;
11 I said in my haste, All men [are] liars.
12 What shall I render unto the LORD [for] all his benefits toward me?
13 I will take the cup of saving health and invoke the name of the LORD.
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his merciful ones.
16 [This is] so, O LORD, because I [am] thy servant; I [am] thy servant, the son of thine handmaid; thou hast loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer unto thee the sacrifice of praise and will invoke 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 courts of the LORD'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Halelu-JAH.:
