1 I love Yahweh - because he heareth my voice, my supplications; 2 Because he hath bowed down his ear unto me, therefore, throughout my days, will I call.
3 The meshes of death encompassed me, and the distresses of hades, came upon me, Peril and sorrow, I found; 4 But, on the Name of Yahweh, I called - I beseech thee, Yahweh, deliver my soul.
5 Gracious is Yahweh and righteous, and, our God, is full of compassion. 6 Yahweh, preserveth the simple, I was brought low, when, to me, he granted salvation. 7 Return, O my soul, to thy rest, For, Yahweh, hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8 For thou hast rescued my soul from death, - mine eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. 9 I will walk to and fro before Yahweh, in the lands of life. 10 I believed that I should speak, I, was greatly depressed. 11 I, said in mine alarm, All men, are false!
12 How shall I give back to Yahweh, All his benefits unto me? 13 The cup of salvation, will I lift, and, on the Name of Yahweh, will I call: 14 My vows - to Yahweh, will I pay, Might it be in presence of all his people!
15 Costly in the eyes of Yahweh, is, death, for his men of lovingkindness. 16 I beseech thee, O Yahweh - for, I, am thy servant, - I, am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid, Thou hast loosened my bonds.
