THE BOOK OF
PSALMS
PSALM 116
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous—Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
  1 I alove 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 apains of bhell 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 amerciful.
  6 The Lord preserveth the asimple: 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 adelivered my bsoul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
  9 I will walk before the Lord in the aland of the living.
  10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
  11 I said in my ahaste, All men are liars.
  12 What shall I arender 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 adeath of his saints.
  16 O Lord, truly I am thy aservant; 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 acall 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 acourts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
