|A Prayer of David.|
|1||Incline your ear, O Yahweh, and answer me, |
for I am poor and needy.
|Incline Thine Ear O Lord.|
|2||Preserve my life, for I am godly; |
save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God;
|3||be gracious to me, O Yahweh, |
for to you do I cry all the day.
|4||Gladden the soul of your servant, |
for to you, O Yahweh, do I lift up my soul.
|5||For you are good and forgiving, O Yahweh, |
abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you.
|6||Give ear, O Yahweh, to my prayer; |
hearken to my cry of supplication.
|7||In the day of my trouble I call on you, |
for you answer me.
|8||There is none like you among the gods, |
O Yahweh, nor are there any works like yours.
|9||All the nations you have made shall come and bow down before you, O Yahweh, |
and shall glorify your name.
|10||For you are great and do wondrous things, |
you alone are God.
|11||Teach me your way, O Yahweh, that I may walk in your truth; |
unite my heart to fear your name.
|12||I give thanks to you, O Yahweh my God, with my whole heart, |
and I will glorify your name for ever.
|13||For great is your steadfast love toward me; |
you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
|14||O God, insolent men have risen up against me; |
a band of ruthless men seek my life,
and they do not set you before them.
|15||But you, O Yahweh, are a God merciful and gracious, |
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
|16||Turn to me and take pity on me; |
give your strength to your servant,
and save the son of your handmaid.
|17||Show me a sign of your favour, |
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
