Do I still use the Chi-Square distribution table to determine the significance of the Ratio Likelihood Chi-Square test statistic?

I know you use it for the Pearson's Chi-square test statistic, so I am unsure whether to same rules apply.

I calculated the Likelihood Ratio Chi-Square in SPSS software program using a 2x2 cross tabulation table, and obtained these results:

Chi-Sq: 0.065, df=1, P-value= 0.799

I just don't know how to interpret these results!

I know the P-value would indicate it is insignificant being greater that 0.05.
