1 I love Jehovah because he hears my voice when I pray.
2 I will call on him as long as I live because he turns his ear toward me listens to me.
3 The ropes of death became tangled around me. The fear of the grave took hold of me. I experienced pain and agony.
4 But I called on the name of Jehovah: »Please, Jehovah, deliver rescue me!«
5 Jehovah is gracious and righteous. Our God is compassionate merciful.
6 Jehovah protects defenseless people simple ones. When I was weak, he saved me.
7 I will be at peace again because Jehovah has been good to you.
8 You saved me from death. You saved my eyes from tears and my feet from stumbling.
9 I will walk in Jehovahs presence in the land of the living.
10 I kept my faith even when I said: I am suffering terribly.
11 I also said when I was panic-stricken: »All men are liars.«
12 How can I repay Jehovah for all the good that he has done for me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation and call on the name of Jehovah.
14 I will keep my vows to Jehovah in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his godly holy ones.
16 O Jehovah, I am indeed your servant. I am your servant, the son of your handmaid. You have freed me from my chains.
17 I will bring a song of thanksgiving to you as a sacrifice. I will call on the name of Jehovah.
18 I will keep my vows to Jehovah in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courtyards of Jehovahs house, in the middle of Jerusalem. Praise Jehovah!
