Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Recovery from Illness

1

I love the Lord, because he has heard

my voice and my supplications.

2

Because he inclined his ear to me,

therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

3

The snares of death encompassed me;

the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;

I suffered distress and anguish.

4

Then I called on the name of the Lord:

“O Lord, I pray, save my life!”

 

5

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;

our God is merciful.

6

The Lord protects the simple;

when I was brought low, he saved me.

7

Return, O my soul, to your rest,

for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

 

8

For you have delivered my soul from death,

my eyes from tears,

my feet from stumbling.

9

I walk before the Lord

in the land of the living.

10

I kept my faith, even when I said,

“I am greatly afflicted”;

11

I said in my consternation,

“Everyone is a liar.”

 

12

What shall I return to the Lord

for all his bounty to me?

13

I will lift up the cup of salvation

and call on 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 faithful ones.

16

O Lord, I am your servant;

I am your servant, the child of your serving girl.

You have loosed my bonds.

17

I will offer to you a thanksgiving sacrifice

and call on 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 house of the Lord,

in your midst, O Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord!
