86:1 A Prayer of David. Bow down thy ear, O LORD, hear me: for I [am] poor and needy. 86:2 Preserve my soul; for I [am] holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. 86:3 Be merciful to me, O LORD: for I cry to thee daily. 86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for to thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. 86:5 For thou, LORD, [art] good, and ready to forgive; and abundant in mercy to all them that call upon thee. 86:6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. 86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me. 86:8 Among the gods [there is] none like thee, O LORD; neither [are there any works] like thy works. 86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O LORD; and shall glorify thy name. 86:10 For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou [art] God alone. 86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. 86:12 I will praise thee, O LORD my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. 86:13 For great [is] thy mercy towards me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell. 86:14 O God, the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent [men] have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them. 86:15 But thou, O LORD, [art] a God full of compassion, and gracious; long-suffering, and abundant in mercy and truth. 86:16 O turn to me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thy handmaid. 86:17 Show me a token for good; that they who hate me may see [it], and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
