A Prayer of David

Ps 86:1Incline Your ear, O Jehovah; answer me; / For I am poor and needy.

Ps 86:2Keep my soul; for I am faithful; / Save Your servant who trusts in You, O You who are my God.

Ps 86:3Be gracious to me, O Lord; / For to You do I call out all day long.

Ps 86:4Cause the soul of Your servant to rejoice, / For unto You, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

Ps 86:5For You, O Lord, are good and ready to forgive / And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.

Ps 86:6Give ear, O Jehovah, to my prayer, / And give heed to the voice of my supplications.

Ps 86:7In the day of my distress I call upon You, / For You answer me.

Ps 86:8There is none like You among the gods, O Lord; / Nor are there any works like Yours.

Ps 86:9All the nations which You have made will come / And worship before You, O Lord; / And they will glorify Your name.

Ps 86:10For You are great, and You do wondrous deeds; / You alone are God.

Ps 86:11Teach me, O Jehovah, Your way; / I will walk in Your truth. / Make my heart single in fearing Your name.

Ps 86:12I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart; / And I will glorify Your name forever.

Ps 86:13For Your lovingkindness is great toward me, / And You have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

Ps 86:14O God, the proud have risen up against me, / And a company of violent men seek my life; / And they do not set You before them.

Ps 86:15But You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, / Long-suffering and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

Ps 86:16Turn to me and be gracious to me; / Give Your strength to Your servant, / And save the son of Your female servant.

Ps 86:17Show me a token of goodness, / That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; / For You, O Jehovah, have helped me and comforted me.
