1I love, because Yahweh hears my voice and my supplications for favor.
2Because he has inclined his ear to me, so in my days I will call upon him.
3The cords of death surrounded me, yes, the snares of Sheol have found me. I found distress and grief.
4Then I called upon the name of Yahweh: “Yahweh, I beseech you, deliver my soul!”
5Yahweh is gracious and righteous. Yes, our God is compassionate.
6Yahweh watches over the naïve; I was brought low and he delivered me.
7Return to your restful condition, O my soul, for Yahweh has treated you well.
8For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from weeping and my feet from stumbling.
9I will walk about in the presence of Yahweh in the lands of the living.
10I believed, even when I said, “I was greatly afflicted.”
11I said in my alarm, “Everyone is a liar.”
12What can I repay to Yahweh for all his benefits toward me?
13I will raise up the cup of salvation and call on the name of Yahweh.
14I will fulfil my vows to Yahweh, yes, right in front of all his people.
15Precious in the eyes of Yahweh is the death of his faithful people.
16Oh, Yahweh, surely I am your servant, I am your servant, the son of your servant girl. You have loosed my chains.
17I will sacrifice to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call upon the name of Yahweh.
18I will fulfil my vows to Yahweh, yes, right in front of all his people,
19in the courts of the house of Yahweh, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise Yah!
