Psalms 116 (asv)

Psalms 116 (asv)

116:1I love Jehovah, because he heareth

My voice and my supplications.

116:2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,

Therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

116:3The cords of death compassed me,

And the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me:

I found trouble and sorrow.

116:4Then called I upon the name of Jehovah:

O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

116:5Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous;

Yea, our God is merciful.

116:6Jehovah preserveth the simple:

I was brought low, and he saved me.

116:7Return unto thy rest, O my soul;

For Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee.

116:8For thou hast delivered my soul from death,

Mine eyes from tears,

And my feet from falling.

116:9I will walk before Jehovah

In the land of the living.

116:10I believe, for I will speak:

I was greatly afflicted:

116:11I said in my haste,

All men are liars.

116:12What shall I render unto Jehovah

For all his benefits toward me?

116:13I will take the cup of salvation,

And call upon the name of Jehovah.

116:14I will pay my vows unto Jehovah,

Yea, in the presence of all his people.

116:15Precious in the sight of Jehovah

Is the death of his saints.

116:16O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant:

I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid;

Thou hast loosed my bonds.

116:17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving,

And will call upon the name of Jehovah.

116:18I will pay my vows unto Jehovah,

Yea, in the presence of all his people,

116:19In the courts of Jehovah's house,

In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.

Praise ye Jehovah.
