Ps 116:1
116:1 I {a} love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and]
      my supplications.

      (a) He grants that no pleasure is so great as to feel
          God's help in our need, neither that anything more
          stirs up our love toward him.

Ps 116:2
116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I
      call upon [him] {b} as long as I live.

      (b) That is in convenient time to seek help, which was
          when he was in distress.

Ps 116:5
116:5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God [is]
      {c} merciful.

      (c) He shows forth the fruit of his love in calling on
          him, confessing him to be just and merciful and to
          help them who are destitute of aid and counsel.

Ps 116:7
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O {d} my soul; for the LORD hath
      dealt bountifully with thee.

      (d) Which was disturbed before, now rest on the Lord, for
          he has been beneficial towards you.

Ps 116:9
116:9 I will {e} walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

      (e) The Lord will preserve me and save my life.

Ps 116:10
116:10 {f} I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly

       (f) I felt all these things, and therefore was moved by
           faith to confess them, @2Co 4:13.

Ps 116:11
116:11 I said in my {g} haste, All men [are] liars.

       (g) In my great distress I thought God would not regard
           man, who is but lies and vanity, yet I overcame this
           temptation and felt the contrary.

Ps 116:13
116:13 I will {h} take the cup of salvation, and call upon the
       name of the LORD.

       (h) In the Law they used to make a banquet when they gave
           solemn thanks to God, and to take the cup and drink
           in sign of thanksgiving.

Ps 116:15
116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the {i} death of
       his saints.

       (i) I perceive that God has a care over his, so that he
           both disposes their death, and takes an account.

Ps 116:18
116:18 I will pay my {k} vows unto the LORD now in the presence
       of all his people,

       (k) I will thank him for his benefits, for that is a just
           payment, to confess that we owe all to God.
