1 I love Jehovah, for he hath heard my voice and my supplications; 2 For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during all my days.
3 The bands of death encompassed me, and the anguish of Sheol took hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow: 4 Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: I beseech thee, Jehovah, deliver my soul.
5 Gracious is Jehovah and righteous; and our God is merciful. 6 Jehovah keepeth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. 7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, my feet from falling. 9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living. 10 I believed, therefore have I spoken. As for me, I was greatly afflicted. 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12 What shall I render unto Jehovah, for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Jehovah. 14 I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints. 16 Yea, Jehovah! for I am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
