1 I have loved, because Jehovah heareth My voice, my supplication,
1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
1 I love the LORD because he has heard my prayer for mercy;
2 Because He hath inclined His ear to me, And during my days I call.
2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
2 for he listens to me whenever I call.
3 Compassed me have cords of death, And straits of Sheol have found me, Distress and sorrow I find.
3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
3 The ropes of death were wound around me and the anguish of Sheol came upon me; I encountered distress and sorrow.
4 And in the name of Jehovah I call: I pray Thee, O Jehovah, deliver my soul,
4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
4 Then I called on the name of the LORD, "LORD, please deliver me!"
5 Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous, Yea, our God is merciful,
5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
5 The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate;
6 A preserver of the simple is Jehovah, I was low, and to me He giveth salvation.
6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
6 the LORD watches over the innocent; I was brought low, and he delivered me.
7 Turn back, O my soul, to thy rest, For Jehovah hath conferred benefits on thee.
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
7 Return to your resting place, my soul, for the LORD treated you generously.
8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, my feet from overthrowing.
8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
8 Indeed, you delivered my soul from death, my eyes from crying, and my feet from stumbling.
9 I walk habitually before Jehovah In the lands of the living.
9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
9 I will walk in the LORD's presence in the lands of the living.
10 I have believed, for I speak, I -- I have been afflicted greatly.
10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
10 I will continue to believe, even when I say, "I am greatly afflicted"
12 What do I return to Jehovah? All His benefits are upon me.
12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
12 What will I return to the LORD for all his benefits to me?
13 The cup of salvation I lift up, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
13 I will raise my cup of deliverance and invoke the LORD's name.
14 My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people.
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
14 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the eyes of Jehovah is the death for His saints.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
15 In the sight of the LORD, the death of his faithful ones is valued.
16 Cause it to come, O Jehovah, for I am Thy servant. I am Thy servant, son of Thy handmaid, Thou hast opened my bonds.
16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
16 LORD, I am indeed your servant. I am your servant. I am the son of your handmaid. You have released my bonds.
17 To Thee I sacrifice a sacrifice of thanks, And in the name of Jehovah I call.
17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
17 I will bring you a thanksgiving offering and call on the name of the LORD!
18 My vows to Jehovah let me complete, I pray you, before all His people,
18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,
19 In the courts of the house of Jehovah, In thy midst, O Jerusalem, praise ye Jah!
19 In the courts of the LORD'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
19 in the courts of the LORD's house, in your midst, Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
