1 I am well pleased, because the Lord will listen to the voice of my supplication.
2 Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore will I call upon him while I live.
3 The pangs of death compassed me; the dangers of hell found me: I found affliction and sorrow.
4 Then I called on the name of the Lord: O Lord, deliver my soul.
5 The Lord is merciful and righteous; yes, our God has pity.
6 The Lord preserves * Gr. infants. the simple: I was brought low, and he delivered me.
7 Return to your rest, O my soul; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
8 For he has delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9 I shall be well-pleasing before the Lord in the land of the living.
10 † In Brenton's text, Psalm 115 commences here, but verse numbers continue from v10 to v19. ✡ 2 Cor 4. 13. I believed, therefore I have spoken: but I was greatly afflicted.
11 And I said in mine amazement, Every man is a liar.
12 What shall I render to the Lord for all the things wherein he has rewarded me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I will pay my vows to the Lord, in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
16 O Lord, I am your servant; I am your servant, and the son of your handmaid: you have burst by bonds asunder.
17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of praise, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I will pay my vows to the Lord, in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of you, Jerusalem.
