1 I have loved, because heard hath Jehovah the voice of my prayer;
2 Because he hath inclined his ear to me, When in my straits I called upon him.
3 They encompassed me, the snares of death, And the sorrows of the grave found me: Trouble and grief I found.
4 And on the name of Jehovah I will call: |I beseech thee, O Jehovah! deliver my soul.|
5 Merciful is Jehovah and righteous; And our God is compassionate.
6 Guard doth Jehovah the simple: I was brought low and he saved me.
7 Return, O my soul! to thy rest; For Jehovah hath dealt kindly with thee.
8 Because thou hast rescued my soul from death My eye from tears, My foot from falling.
9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living.
10 I have believed, for I will speak: |I am afflicted greatly.|
11 I said in my fear, |Every man is a liar.|
12 What shall I render to Jehovah? All his benefits are upon me.
13 The cup of salvation I will take, And upon the name of Jehovah I will call.
14 My vows to, Jehovah I will perform Now in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the eyes of Jehovah is the death of his meek ones.
16 Come! O Jehovah! for I, am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid; Thou hast broken my fetters.
17 To thee will I sacrifice the sacrifice of praise, And upon the name of Jehovah will I call.
18 My vows to Jehovah will I perform Now in the presence of all his people,
19 In the courts of the house of Jehovah In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem! Hallelujah.
