Brenton Septuagint Translation
He Listens to My Voice
1Alleluia. I am well pleased, because the Lord will hearken to the voice of my supplication.
2Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore will I call upon him while I live.
3The pangs of death compassed me; the dangers of hell found me: I found affliction and sorrow.
4Then I called on the name of the Lord: O Lord, deliver my soul.
5The Lord is merciful and righteous; yea, our God has pity.
6The Lord preserves the simple: I was brought low, and he delivered me.
7Return to thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with thee.
8For he has delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9I shall be well-pleasing before the Lord in the land of the living. Alleluia:
10I believed, wherefore I have spoken: but I was greatly afflicted.
11And I said in mine amazement, Every man is a liar.
12What shall I render to the Lord for all the things wherein he has rewarded me?
13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.
14I will pay my vows to the Lord, in the presence of all his people.
15Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
16O Lord, I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast burst by bonds asunder.
17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of praise, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
18I will pay my vows unto the Lord, in the presence of all his people,
19in the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, Jerusalem.
