I love YHWH, because He has heard my voice, my pleas.
Because He has inclined His ear to me, And I shall call throughout my days.
The cords of death were around me, And the pains of the grave came upon me; I found distress and sorrow.
Then I called upon the Name of YHWH, 'O YHWH, I pray to You, deliver my being!'
YHWH shows favour and is righteous; And our Elohim is compassionate.
YHWH guards the simple; I was brought low, but He saved me.
Return to your rest, O my being, For YHWH has treated you well.
For You have delivered my being from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from falling.
I shall walk before YHWH in the land of the living.
I have believed, for I speak; I have been greatly afflicted.
I said in my haste, 'All men are liars.'
What shall I return to YHWH? All His bounties are upon me.
I lift up the cup of deliverance, And call upon the Name of YHWH.
I pay my vows to YHWH Now in the presence of all His people.
Precious in the eyes of YHWH Is the death of His kind ones.
O YHWH, I am truly Your servant, I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant; You have loosed my bonds.
I bring You a slaughtering of thanksgiving, And call upon the Name of YHWH.
I pay my vows to YHWH In the presence of all His people,
In the courts of the House of YHWH, In your midst, O Yerushalayim. Praise Yah!
