Psalm 116
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

I Love Yahweh

1I love Yahweh, because He hears

My voice and my supplications.

2Because He has inclined His ear to me,

So I shall call upon Him in all my days.

3The cords of death encompassed me

And the [†]distresses of Sheol found me;

I found distress and sorrow.

4Then I called upon the name of Yahweh:

“O Yahweh, I beseech You, [†]provide my soul escape!”

5Gracious is Yahweh, and righteous;

And our God is compassionate.

6Yahweh keeps the simple;

I was brought low, and He saved me.

7Return to your rest, O my soul,

For Yahweh has dealt bountifully with you.

8For You have rescued my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

My feet from stumbling.

9I shall walk before Yahweh

In the [†]land of the living.

10I believed when I said,

“I am greatly afflicted.”

11I said in my alarm,

“All men are liars.”

12What shall I give to Yahweh in return

For all His bountiful dealings [†]with me?

13I shall lift up the cup of [†]salvation

And call upon the name of Yahweh.

14I shall pay my vows to Yahweh,

Oh may it be in the presence of all His people.

15Precious in the sight of Yahweh

Is the death of His holy ones.

16O Yahweh, [†]surely I am Your slave,

I am Your slave, the son of Your maidservant,

You have loosed my bonds.

17To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving,

And call upon the name of Yahweh.

18I shall pay my vows to Yahweh,

Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,

19In the courts of the house of Yahweh,

In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.

[†]Praise Yah!

3 Lit straits
4 Or deliver my soul!
9 Lit lands
12 Lit upon
13 Lit salvations
16 Or because
19 Or Hallelujah!
