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!
