Psalm 86

A Prayer of David

86 1Bow down thine ear, O Jehovah, and answer me;

For I am poor and needy.

2Preserve my soul; for I am godly:

O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

3Be merciful unto me, O Lord;

For unto thee do I cry all the day long.

4Rejoice the soul of thy servant;

For unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive,

And abundant in lovingkindness unto all them that call upon thee.

6Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer;

And hearken unto the voice of my supplications.

7In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee;

For thou wilt answer me.

8There is none like unto thee among the gods, O Lord;

Neither are there any works like unto thy works.

9All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord;

And they shall glorify thy name.

10For thou art great, and doest wondrous things:

Thou art God alone.

11Teach me thy way, O Jehovah; I will walk in thy truth:

Unite my heart to fear thy name.

12I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart;

And I will glorify thy name for evermore.

13For great is thy lovingkindness toward me;

And thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14O God, the proud are risen up against me,

And a company of violent men have sought after my soul,

And have not set thee before them.

15But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

16Oh turn unto me, and ahave mercy upon me;

Give thy strength unto thy servant,

And save the son of thy handmaid.

17Show me a token for good,

That they who hate me may see it, and be put to shame,

Because thou, Jehovah, hast helped me, and comforted me.
