|[A Prayer of David.]|
|Incline thy ear, O LORD, and answer me, |
for I am poor and needy.
|In Praise of Zion. Psalm 86(v85)|
|Preserve my life, for I am godly; |
save thy servant who trusts in thee.
Thou art my God;
|be gracious to me, O Lord, |
for to thee do I cry all the day.
|Gladden the soul of thy servant, |
for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
|For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving, |
abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.
|Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; |
hearken to my cry of supplication.
|In the day of my trouble I call on thee, |
for thou dost answer me.
|There is none like thee among the gods, |
O Lord, nor are there any works like thine.
|All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord, |
and shall glorify thy name.
|For thou art great and doest wondrous things, |
thou alone art God.
|Teach me thy way, O LORD, that I may walk in thy truth; |
unite my heart to fear thy name.
|I give thanks to thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, |
and I will glorify thy name for ever.
|For great is thy steadfast love toward me; |
thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
|O God, insolent men have risen up against me; |
a band of ruthless men seek my life,
and they do not set thee before them.
|But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, |
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
|Turn to me and take pity on me; |
give thy strength to thy servant,
and save the son of thy handmaid.
|Show me a sign of thy favor, |
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because thou, LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.
