1 I love Jehovah because He hears my voice and my prayers. 2 Because He has bowed down His ear to me, therefore I will call on Him in my days.
3 The sorrows of death hemmed me in, and the pains of hell took hold on me; I found trouble and sorrow. 4 Then I called on the name of Jehovah; O Jehovah, I beseech You, deliver my soul.
5 Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 6 Jehovah keeps the simple; I was brought low, and He helped me. 7 Return to your rest, O my soul; for Jehovah has dealt bountifully with you. 8 For You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling. 9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living. 10 I believed, therefore I have spoken; I was greatly afflicted; 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12 What shall I give to Jehovah for all His benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call on the name of Jehovah. 14 I will pay my vows to Jehovah now in the presence of all His people.
15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of His saints. 16 O Jehovah, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, and the son of Your handmaid; You have loosed my bonds.
