Psalms 86

1A Prayer of David. Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2Keep my soul, for I am pious, Save Thy servant--who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God. 3Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day. 4Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, For unto Thee, O Lord, my soul I lift up. 5For Thou, Lord, art good and forgiving. And abundant in kindness to all calling Thee. 6Hear, O Jehovah, my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplications. 7In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.

8There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none. 9All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name. 10For great art Thou, and doing wonders, Thou art God Thyself alone. 11Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name. 12I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age. 13For Thy kindness is great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol. 14O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them, 15And Thou, O Lord, art God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth. 16Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid. 17Do with me a sign for good, And those hating me see and are ashamed, For Thou, O Jehovah, hast helped me, Yea, Thou hast comforted me!
