The Holy Bible – Knox Translation
The Book of Psalms
I trusted, even when most I bewailed my unhappy lot;
bewildered, I said, Man’s faith is false;
but the Lord’s mercies have never failed me; what return shall I make to him?✻
I will take the cup that is pledge of my deliverance, and invoke the name of the Lord upon it;
I will pay the Lord my vows in the presence of all his people.
Dear in the Lord’s sight is the death of those who love him;
and am not I, Lord, thy servant, born of thy own handmaid? Thou hast broken the chains that bound me;
I will sacrifice in thy honour, and call on the name of the Lord.
Before a throng of worshippers I will pay the Lord my vows,
here in the courts of the Lord’s house, here, Jerusalem, in thy heart.
