Psalms 86

A Prayer. Of David.

1 Let your ears be open to my voice, O Lord, and give me an answer; for I am poor and in need. 2Keep my soul, for I am true to you; O my God, give salvation to your servant, whose hope is in you. 3Have mercy on me, O Lord; for my cry goes up to you all the day. 4Make glad the soul of your servant; for it is lifted up to you, O Lord. 5You are good, O Lord, and full of forgiveness; your mercy is great to all who make their cry to you. 6O Lord, give ear to my prayer; and take note of the sound of my requests. 7In the day of my trouble I send up my cry to you; for you will give me an answer. 8There is no god like you, O Lord; there are no works like your works. 9Let all the nations whom you have made come and give worship to you, O Lord, giving glory to your name. 10For you are great, and do great works of wonder; you only are God. 11Make your way clear to me, O Lord; I will go on my way in your faith: let my heart be glad in the fear of your name. 12I will give you praise, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will give glory to your name for ever. 13For your mercy to me is great; you have taken my soul up from the deep places of the underworld. 14O God, men of pride have come up against me, and the army of violent men would take my life; they have not put you before them. 15But you, O Lord, are a God full of pity and forgiveness, slow to get angry, great in mercy and wisdom. 16O be turned to me and have mercy on me: give your strength to your servant, and your salvation to the son of her who is your servant. 17Give me a sign for good; so that my haters may see it and be shamed; because you, Lord, have been my help and comfort.
