Psalms 86

A Prayer of David. Bow down thy ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. {A Prayer...: or, A Prayer, being a Psalm of David} Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. {holy: or, one whom thou favourest} Be merciful to me, O Lord: for I cry to thee daily. {daily: or, all the day} Rejoice 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; and abundant in mercy to all them that call upon thee. Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

Among the gods there is none like thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like thy works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name. 10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. 11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. 12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. 13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell. {hell: or, grave} 14 O God, the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them. {violent: Heb. terrible} 15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in mercy and truth. 16 O turn to me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thy handmaid. 17 Show me a sign for good; that they who hate me may see it , and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
