The Psalms

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death
1  I love the LORD, because he hath heard
my voice and my supplications.
2  Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,
therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3  The sorrows of death compassed me,
and the pains of hell gat hold upon me:
I found trouble and sorrow.
4  Then called I upon the name of the LORD;
O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;
yea, our God is merciful.
6  The LORD preserveth the simple:
I was brought low, and he helped me.
7  Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8  For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
mine eyes from tears,
and my feet from falling.
9  I will walk before the LORD
in the land of the living.
10  I believed, therefore have I spoken: 2 Cor. 4.13
I was 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 saints.
16  O LORD, truly I am thy servant;
I am thy servant,
and the son of thine handmaid:
thou hast loosed my bonds.
17  I will offer to thee 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 LORD's house,
in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
Praise ye the LORD.
