Salme 116

Hjælp i dødsangst

1Jeg elsker Herren,
    for han hører min bøn.
Han lytter til mit råb om hjælp,
    jeg vil bede til ham, så længe jeg lever.
Døden holdt mig i sit kvælertag,
    jeg var dødsens angst og dybt fortvivlet.
Da råbte jeg: „Herre, red mig fra at dø!”

Herren er god og nådig.
    Vor Gud er fuld af barmhjertighed.
Han hjælper dem, der råber om hjælp,
    han frelste mig i nødens stund.
Min sjæl, fald til ro igen,
    for Herren har bevist sin godhed.
Han reddede mig fra døden,
    mit øje fra gråd, min fod fra fald.
Jeg er stadig i live,
    og jeg vil altid følge Herrens vej.

10 Jeg troede, og derfor talte jeg.
    „Herre!” råbte jeg. „Jeg er i stor nød!”
11 I min bitre angst sagde jeg:
    „De er alle sammen fulde af løgn!”

12 Hvad kan jeg give til Herren
    for al hans godhed imod mig?
13 Jeg vil takke ham for min redning
    med et drikoffer.
14 Jeg vil bringe ham de ofre, jeg har lovet,
    for øjnene af hele folket.

15 Herren elsker sit folk,
    han griber ind, hvis nogen er nær ved at dø.
16 Herre, jeg er din tjener, en simpel slave.
    Tak, fordi du reddede mig fra døden.
17 Jeg vil bringe dig takofre
    og lovprise dig.
18 Jeg vil bringe de ofre, jeg lovede,
    for øjnene af hele folket,
19 midt i din helligdom, Herre,
    midt i Jerusalem.
Halleluja!

Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

1I love the Lord, because He hears
My voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
The cords of death encompassed me
And the [a]terrors of [b]Sheol [c]came upon me;
I found distress and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I beseech You, [d]save my life!”

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is compassionate.
The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
For You have rescued my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
I shall walk before the Lord
In the [e]land of the living.
10 I believed when I said,
“I am greatly afflicted.”
11 I said in my alarm,
“All men are liars.”

12 What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits [f]toward me?
13 I shall lift up the cup of salvation
And call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I shall pay my vows to the Lord,
Oh may it be 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, [g]surely I am Your servant,
I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid,
You have loosed my bonds.
17 To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I shall pay my vows to the Lord,
Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,
19 In the courts of the Lord’s house,
In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
[h]Praise [i]the Lord!
