Psalms 86


Deliver Your Servant

A prayer to David.

Lean, O  lord, your ear, and heed me! for [2poor 3and 4needy 1I am]. Guard my soul, for I am sacred! Deliver your servant, O my God! the one hoping upon you. Show mercy on me, O  lord! for to you I will cry out the entire day. Gladden the soul of your servant! for to you I lifted my soul. For you, O  lord, are gracious, and lenient, and full of mercy to all the ones calling upon you. Give ear, O  lord, to my prayer, and take heed to the voice of my supplication! In the day of my affliction I cried out to you, for you heeded me. There is not one likened to you among gods, O  lord; and there is not one likened according to your works. All the nations, as many as you made, shall come and do obeisance before you, O  lord, and they shall glorify your name. 10 For [2great 1you are], and performing wonders. You are the only God. 11 Guide me, O  lord, in your way! and I will go in your truth. Let [2be glad 1my heart] to fear your name! 12 I shall make acknowledgment to you, O  lord my God, with [2entire 3heart 1my]; and I will glorify your name into the eon. 13 For your mercy is great towards me; and you rescued my soul from out of [2Hades 1lowermost]. 14 O God, lawbreakers rose up against me, and a gathering of strong ones sought my life; and they did not set you before them. 15 And you, O  lord my God, are pitying and merciful, lenient and full of mercy, and true. 16 Look upon me, and show mercy on me! Give your might to your child, and deliver the son of your maidservant! 17 Establish with me a sign for good, and let [4see 1the 2ones detesting 3me], and be ashamed! For you, O  lord, helped me, and comforted me.
