(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. I wished that the Lord would hear my voice [in] my supplications.
  2. For He extended His ear to me, and I shall call out in my days.
  3. [When] bands of death surrounded me and the boundaries of the grave befell me, and I found trouble and grief,
  4. And I called out in the name of the Lord, « Please, O Lord, save my soul!
  5. The Lord is gracious and righteous, and our God is merciful.
  6. The Lord protects the simple; when I was poor, He saved me.
  7. Return, my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
  8. For You have rescued my soul from death, my eye from tears, and my foot from stumbling.
  9. I shall walk before the Lord in the lands of the living.
  10. I believed so that I spoke; I humble myself exceedingly.
  11. I said in my haste, « All men are liars. »
  12. How can I repay the Lord for all His favors upon me?
  13. I shall lift up a cup of salvations, and I shall call out in the name of the Lord.
  14. I shall pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all His people.
  15. Difficult in the eyes of the Lord is the death of His pious ones.
  16. Please, O Lord, for I am Your servant; I am Your servant the son of Your maidservant; You have loosed my thongs.
  17. To You I shall slaughter a thanksgiving offering, and I shall call out in the name of the Lord.
  18. I shall pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all His people,
  19. In the courtyards of the house of the Lord, in your midst, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
