Psalms Chapter 116 | Parsha:

1I love the Lord
for He hears my voice, my pleas;

2for He turns His ear to me
whenever I call.

3The bonds of death encompassed me;
the torments of Sheol overtook me.
I came upon trouble and sorrow

4and I invoked the name of the Lord,
“O Lord, save my life!”

5The Lord is gracious and beneficent;
our God is compassionate.

6The Lord protects the simple;
I was brought low and He saved me.

7Be at rest, once again, O my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you.

8You have delivered me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.

9I shall walk before the Lord
in the lands of the living.

10I trust [in the Lord];
out of great suffering I spoke

11and said rashly,
“All men are false.”

12How can I repay the Lord
for all His bounties to me?

13I raise the cup of deliverance
and invoke the name of the Lord.

14I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all His people.

15The death of His faithful ones
is grievous in the Lord’s sight.

16O Lord,
I am Your servant,
Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;
You have undone the cords that bound me.

17I will sacrifice a thank offering to You
and invoke the name of the Lord.

18I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all His people,

19in the courts of the house of the Lord,
in the midst of Jerusalem.
Hallelujah.
