Psalms 86

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