A Prayer by David.1 Hear, Jehovah, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2Preserve my soul, for I am godly.
You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you.
3Be merciful to me, Lord,
for I call to you all day long.
4Bring joy to the soul of your servant,
for to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive;
abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you.
6Hear, Jehovah, my prayer.
Listen to the voice of my petitions.
7In the day of my trouble I will call on you,
for you will answer me.
8There is no one like you among the gods, Lord,
nor any deeds like your deeds.
9All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord.
They shall glorify your name.
10For you are great, and do wondrous things.
You are God alone.
11Teach me your way, Jehovah.
I will walk in your truth.
Make my heart undivided to fear your name.
12I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole heart.
I will glorify your name forevermore.
13For your loving kindness is great toward me.
You have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.
14God, the proud have risen up against me.
A company of violent men have sought after my soul,
and they do not hold regard for you before them.
15But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God,
slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth.
16Turn to me, and have mercy on me!
Give your strength to your servant.
Save the son of your handmaid.
17Show me a sign of your goodness,
that those who hate me may see it, and be shamed,
because you, Jehovah, have helped me, and comforted me.
