Psalm 86

A Prayer of David
1 Extend Your ear, O Jehovah, hear me; for I am lowly and needy.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am holy; You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You!
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord, for I cry out to You daily.
4 Make glad the soul of Your servant, for unto You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abounding in mercy unto all those who call upon You.
6 Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer; and give attention to the voice of my supplications.
7 In the day of my distress I will call upon You, for You will answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord; nor any like Your works.
9 All nations whom You have made shall come and bow down before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name;
10 for You are great, and do wondrous things; You alone are God.
11 Teach me Your way, O Jehovah; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name.
12 I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name always.
13 For great is Your mercy toward me, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14 O God, the proud have risen against me, and the company of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set You before them.
15 But You, O Lord, are a Mighty God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.
16 O turn to me, and have mercy upon me! Give Your strength to Your servant, and deliver the son of Your handmaid.
17 Show me a sign for good, that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, because You, Jehovah, have helped me and comforted me.
