Psalms 86

A Psalm of Supplication and Trust.

A Prayer of David.

a Incline Your ear, O  Lord, and answer me;
For I am b afflicted and needy.
c Preserve my
Or life
soul, for I am a e godly man;
O You my God, save Your servant who f trusts in You.
Be g gracious to me, O Lord,
For h to You I cry all day long.
Make glad the soul of Your servant,
For to You, O Lord i I lift up my soul.
For You, Lord, are j good, and k ready to forgive,
And l abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.
m Give ear, O  Lord, to my prayer;
And give heed to the voice of my supplications!
In n the day of my trouble I shall call upon You,
For o You will answer me.
There is p no one like You among the gods, O Lord,
Nor are there any works q like Yours.
r All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord,
And they shall glorify Your name.
10 For You are s great and t do
Or miracles
wondrous deeds;
You alone v are God.

11  w Teach me Your way, O  Lord;
I will walk in Your truth;
x Unite my heart to fear Your name.
12 I will y give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
And will glorify Your name forever.
13 For Your lovingkindness toward me is great,
And You have z delivered my soul from the
Lit lowest Sheol
depths of
I.e. the nether world

14 O God, arrogant men have ac risen up against me,
Or an assembly
a band of violent men have sought my
Lit soul
And they have not set You before them.
15 But You, O Lord, are a God af merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and
Or faithfulness
16  ah Turn to me, and be gracious to me;
Oh ai grant Your strength to Your servant,
And save the aj son of Your handmaid.
17  ak Show me a sign for good,
That those who hate me may al see it and be ashamed,
Because You, O  Lord am have helped me and comforted me.
