Psalm 116 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice
    and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
    therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

The cords of death encircled me,
    and the pains of Sheol took hold of me;
    I found trouble and sorrow.
Then called I upon the name of the Lord:
    “O Lord, I plead with You, deliver my soul.”

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
    indeed, our God is merciful.
The Lord protects the simple;
    I was brought low, and He helped me.

Return to your rest, O my soul;
    for the Lord has vindicated you.

For You have delivered my soul from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    and my feet from falling.
I will walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

10 I believed, indeed I have spoken:
    “I am greatly afflicted.”
11 I said in my haste,
    “All men are liars.”

12 What shall I render 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 death of His godly ones.
16 O Lord, I am Your servant;
    I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant;
    You have loosed my bonds.

17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving
    and will call 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 courts of the house of the Lord,
    in your midst, O Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord!
