1 I love the Lord,
for he has heard the voice of my supplication;
because he inclined his ear to me
on the day I called to him.
2 The snares of death encompassed me;
the pains of hell took hold of me;
by grief and sorrow was I held.
12 I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people.
13 Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his faithful servants.
14 O Lord, I am your servant,
your servant, the child of your handmaid;
you have freed me from my bonds.
15 I will offer to you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call upon the name of the Lord.
16 I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people,
17 In the courts of the house of the Lord,
in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
