Chapter 86

1


 

   A Prayer of David Bow down thine ear, O Jehovah, and answer me; For I am poor and needy.  

 

 


2


 

  Preserve my soul; for I am godly: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.  

 

 


3


 

  Be merciful unto me, O Lord; For unto thee do I cry all the day long.  

 

 


4


 

  Rejoice the soul of thy servant; For unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.  

 

 


5


 

  For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness unto all them that call upon thee.  

 

 


6


 

  Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer; And hearken unto the voice of my supplications.  

 

 


7


 

  In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee; For thou wilt answer me.  

 

 


8


 

  There is none like unto thee among the gods, O Lord; Neither [are there any works] like unto thy works.  

 

 


9


 

  All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; And they shall glorify thy name.  

 

 


10


 

  For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: Thou art God alone.  

 

 


11


 

  Teach me thy way, O Jehovah; I will walk in thy truth: Unite my heart to fear thy name.  

 

 


12


 

  I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart; And I will glorify thy name for evermore.  

 

 


13


 

  For great is thy lovingkindness toward me; And thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.  

 

 


14


 

  O God, the proud are risen up against me, And a company of violent men have sought after my soul, And have not set thee before them.  

 

 


15


 

  But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.  

 

 


16


 

  Oh turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; Give thy strength unto thy servant, And save the son of thy handmaid.  

 

 


17


 

  Show me a token for good, That they who hate me may see it, and be put to shame, Because thou, Jehovah, hast helped me, and comforted me.
