The author of Psalm 116 wrote it as thanks to God, for having been delivered from death. We will always have something to thank our Lord for, He continually delivers us from evil and leads us to victory.
Verses 12 to 19 of this incredible psalm say:
12 What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me? 13 I will take up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. 14 I will pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all His people. 15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His saints. 16 O Lord, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have loosed my bonds. 17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I will pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all His people, 19 In the courts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
[a]Praise the Lord!
Below we share this beautiful psalm sung by a group of Jews in the Hebron synagogue. They sing the verses that we mentioned earlier. Tell us what you think of this beautiful melody.
