Psalms Chapters

1 Alleluia! I am filled with love when Yahweh listens to the sound of my prayer,

2 when he bends down to hear me, as I call.

3 The bonds of death were all round me, the snares of Sheol held me fast; distress and anguish held me in their grip,

4 I called on the name of Yahweh. Deliver me, Yahweh, I beg you.

5 Yahweh is merciful and upright, our God is tenderness.

6 Yahweh looks after the simple, when I was brought low he gave me strength.

7 My heart, be at peace once again, for Yahweh has treated you generously.

8 He has rescued me from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

9 I shall pass my life in the presence of Yahweh, in the land of the living.

10 My trust does not fail even when I say, 'I am completely wretched.'

11 In my terror I said, 'No human being can be relied on.'

12 What return can I make to Yahweh for his generosity to me?

13 I shall take up the cup of salvation and call on the name of Yahweh.

14 I shall fulfil my vows to Yahweh, witnessed by all his people.

15 Costly in Yahweh's sight is the death of his faithful.

16 I beg you, Yahweh! I am your servant, I am your servant and my mother was your servant; you have undone my fetters.

17 I shall offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of Yahweh.

18 I shall fulfil my vows to Yahweh, witnessed by all his people,

19 in the courts of the house of Yahweh, in your very heart, Jerusalem.
