Psalms

Chapter 86

1

A prayer of David. 1 Hear me, LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and oppressed.

2

Preserve my life, for I am loyal; save your servant who trusts in you.

3

You are my God; pity me, Lord; to you I call all the day.

4

Gladden the soul of your servant; to you, Lord, I lift up my soul.

5

Lord, you are kind and forgiving, most loving to all who call on you.

6

LORD, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help.

7

In this time of trouble I call, for you will answer me.

8

None among the gods can equal you, O Lord; nor can their deeds compare to yours.

9

All the nations you have made shall come to bow before you, Lord, and give honor to your name.

10

For you are great and do wondrous deeds; and you alone are God.

11

Teach me, LORD, your way that I may walk in your truth, single-hearted and revering your name.

12

I will praise you with all my heart, glorify your name forever, Lord my God.

13

Your love for me is great; you have rescued me from the depths of Sheol.

14

O God, the arrogant have risen against me; a ruthless band has sought my life; to you they pay no heed.

15

But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, most loving and true.

16

Turn to me, have pity on me; give your strength to your servant; save this child of your handmaid.

17

Give me a sign of your favor: make my enemies see, to their confusion, that you, LORD, help and comfort me.
