The psalmist professeth his love and duty to God for his deliverance.
Psalms 116:1 I love Jehovah, for he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications; Psalms 116:2 For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during [all] my days. Psalms 116:3 The bands of death encompassed me, and the anguish of Sheol took hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow: Psalms 116:4 Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: I beseech thee, Jehovah, deliver my soul. Psalms 116:5 Gracious is Jehovah and righteous; and our God is merciful. Psalms 116:6 Jehovah keepeth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. Psalms 116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. Psalms 116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, my feet from falling. Psalms 116:9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living. Psalms 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken. As for me, I was greatly afflicted. Psalms 116:11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.
He studieth to be thankful.
Psalms 116:12 What shall I render unto Jehovah, [for] all his benefits toward me? Psalms 116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Jehovah. Psalms 116:14 I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people. Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints. Psalms 116:16 Yea, Jehovah! for I am thy servant; I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. Psalms 116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Jehovah. Psalms 116:18 I will perform my vows unto Jehovah, yea, before all his people, Psalms 116:19 In the courts of Jehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
