Psalms 86

A prayer of David.

Incline thine ear, O LORD! and hear me, For I am poor and distressed! Preserve my life, for I am devoted to thee! Save, O thou my God! thy servant who trusteth in thee! Have pity upon me, O Lord! For to thee do I cry daily! Revive the soul of thy servant, For to thee, O Lord! do I lift up my soul! For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; Yea, rich in mercy to all that call upon thee! Give ear, O LORD! to my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplication! In the day of my trouble I call upon thee, For thou dost answer me! Among the gods there is none like thee, O Lord! And there are no works like thy works! All the nations which thou hast made must come and worship before thee, O Lord! And glorify thy name! 10 For great art thou, and wondrous are thy works; Thou alone art God! 11 Teach me, O LORD! thy way, That I may walk in thy truth; Unite all my heart to fear thy name! 12 I will praise thee, O Lord, my God! with my whole heart; I will give glory to thy name for ever! 13 For thy kindness to me hath been great; Thou hast delivered me from the depths of the underworld! 14 O God! the proud have risen against me; Bands of cruel men seek my life, And set not thee before their eyes. 15 But thou, O Lord! art a God full of compassion and kindness, Long-suffering, rich in mercy and truth! 16 Look upon me, and have compassion upon me! Give thy strength to thy servant, And save the son of thy handmaid! 17 Show me a token for good, That my enemies may see it and be confounded; Because thou, O LORD! helpest and comfortest me!
