The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


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 snares of death compassed me, and the terrors of the grave came upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
    4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, save my life.
    5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
    6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved 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 stumbling.
    9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
    10 I believed, even when I said: I am greatly afflicted:
    11 I said in my dismay, All men are liars.
    12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
    13 I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
    14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD 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 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.
