Psalm 116

Psalm 116 is the 116th psalm of the Book of Psalms.



  • Is one of six psalms (113-118) of which Hallel is composed. On all days when Hallel is recited, this psalm is recited in its entirety, except on Rosh Chodesh and the last six days of Passover, when only verses 1-11 are recited.[1]
  • Verse 13 is part of Havdalah.[2]


Some churches follow the chapter divisions based on Septuagint, where verses 1-9 is Psalm 114 and verses 10-19 is Psalm 115.
