The King James Version Bible

Psalms 116

  1. I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

  2. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

  3. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

  4. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

  5. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

  6. The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

  7. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

  8. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

  9. I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

  10. I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

  11. I said in my haste, All men are liars.

  12. What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

  13. I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

  14. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

  15. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

  16. O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

  17. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

  18. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,

  19. In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
