116:1 I love the Lord
because he heard my plea for mercy,
116:2 and listened to me.
As long as I live, I will call to him when I need help.
116:3 The ropes of death tightened around me,
the snares of Sheol confronted me.
I was confronted with trouble and sorrow.
116:4 I called on the name of the Lord,
“Please Lord, rescue my life!”
