Scripture for Our Generation: Psalm 116

The ropes of death were wrapped around me,
and the torments of Sheol overcame me;
I encountered trouble and sorrow.

Then I called on the name of Yahweh:
“Yahweh, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is compassionate.

The Lord guards the inexperienced;
I was helpless, and He saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you.

For You, Lord, rescued me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.

I will walk before the Lord
in the land of the living.

Psalm 116:3-9
