Psalm 116

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
    he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
    I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
    the anguish of the grave came over me;
    I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    Lord, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
    our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the unwary;
    when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul,
    for the Lord has been good to you.

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

10 I trusted in the Lord when I said,
    “I am greatly afflicted”;
11 in my alarm I said,
    “Everyone is a liar.”

12 What shall I return to the Lord
    for all his goodness to me?

13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will fulfill 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 servants.
16 Truly I am your servant, Lord;
    I serve you just as my mother did;
    you have freed me from my chains.

17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to you
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill 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, Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.[a]

  1. Psalm 116:19 Hebrew Hallelu Yah

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 116

感谢拯救之恩

1我爱耶和华,
因为祂垂听了我的呼求和祷告。
因为祂垂听我的祈求,
我一生都要向祂祷告。
死亡的绳索缠绕我,
阴间的恐怖笼罩我,
我被困苦和忧愁淹没。
于是,我求告耶和华,
说:“耶和华啊,求你拯救我。”
耶和华仁慈、公义,
我们的上帝充满怜悯。
耶和华保护心地单纯的人,
危难之时祂救了我。
我的心啊,再次安宁吧,
因为耶和华恩待你。
祂救我的性命脱离死亡,
止住我眼中的泪水,
使我双脚免于滑倒。
我要在世上事奉耶和华。
10 我相信,所以才说:
“我受尽了痛苦。”
11 我曾惊恐地说:
“人人都说谎。”
12 我拿什么报答耶和华赐给我的一切恩惠呢?
13 我要为耶和华的拯救之恩而举杯称颂祂的名。
14 我要在耶和华的子民面前还我向祂许的愿。

15 耶和华的眼目顾惜祂圣民的死亡。
16 耶和华啊!我是你的仆人,
是你的仆人,是你婢女的儿子。
你除去了我的锁链。
17 我要向你献上感恩祭,
呼求你的名。
18-19 我要在耶路撒冷,
在耶和华的殿中,
在耶和华的子民面前还我向祂许的愿。

你们要赞美耶和华!
