Psalm 116

Dilexi, quoniam
I am well pleased  *
that the Lord hath heard the voice of my prayer;
That he hath inclined his ear unto me *
therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
The snares of death compassed me round about *
and the pains of hell gat hold upon me.
I shall find trouble and heaviness, and I will call upon the Name of the Lord *
O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous *
yea, our God is merciful.
The Lord preserveth the simple *
I was in misery, and he helped me.
Turn again then unto thy rest, O my soul *
for the Lord hath rewarded thee.
And why? thou hast delivered my soul from death *
mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
I will walk before the Lord *
in the land of the living.
I believed, and therefore will I speak; but I was sore troubled *
I said in my haste, All men are liars.
What reward shall I give unto the Lord *
for all the benefits that he hath done unto me?
I will receive the cup of salvation *
and call upon the Name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows now in the presence of all his people *
right dear in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Behold, O Lord, how that I am thy servant *
I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid; thou hast broken my bonds in sunder.
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and will call upon the Name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows unto the Lord, in the sight of all his people *
in the courts of the Lord’s house, even in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
