Psalms 86

1Bow down thine ear, O Jehovah, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2Preserve my soul, for I am devout. O thou my God, save thy servant who trusts in thee. 3Be merciful to me, O Lord, for to thee do I cry all the day long. 4Rejoice the soul of thy servant, for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 5For thou, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in loving kindness to all those who call upon thee. 6Give ear, O Jehovah, to my prayer, and hearken to the voice of my supplications. 7In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee, for thou will answer me. 8There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord, nor like thy works. 9All nations whom thou have made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord, and they shall glorify thy name. 10For thou are great, and do wondrous things. Thou alone are God. 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 loving kindness toward me, and thou have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol. 14O God, the proud have 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, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth. 16O turn to me, and have mercy upon me. Give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thy handmaid. 17Show me a sign for good, that those who hate me may see it, and be put to shame, because thou, Jehovah, have helped me, and comforted me.
