Original text and translations
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.
9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.
