2 Because he ainclined his ear to me,
3 bThe snares of death encompassed me;
4 Then cI called on the name of the Lord:
our God is fmerciful.
6 The Lord preserves gthe simple;
when hI was brought low, he saved me.
7 Return, O my soul, to your irest;
for the Lord has jdealt bountifully with you.
8 For kyou have delivered my soul from death,
lin the land of the living.
11 oI said in my alarm,
p“All mankind are liars.”
12 What shall I qrender to the Lord
13 I will lift up rthe cup of salvation
and scall on the name of the Lord,
14 I will tpay my vows to the Lord
15 uPrecious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his vsaints.
16 O Lord, I am your wservant;
I am your servant, xthe son of your maidservant.
You have yloosed my bonds.
17 I will zoffer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
and scall on the name of the Lord.
18 I will tpay my vows to the Lord
19 in athe courts of the house of the Lord,
bPraise the Lord!
