A prayer of David: Listen, ADONAI, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am faithful; save your servant, who puts his trust in you because you are my God.
Take pity on me, Adonai, for I cry to you all day.
Fill your servant's heart with joy, for to you, Adonai, I lift my heart.
Adonai, you are kind and forgiving, full of grace toward all who call on you.
Listen, ADONAI, to my prayer; pay attention to my pleading cry.
On the day of my trouble I am calling on you, for you will answer me.
There is none like you among the gods, Adonai; no deeds compare with yours.
All the nations you have made will come and bow before you, Adonai; they will honor your name.
For you are great, and you do wonders; you alone are God.
ADONAI, teach me your way, so that I can live by your truth; make me single-hearted, so that I can fear your name.
I will thank you, Adonai my God, with my whole heart; and I will glorify your name forever.
For your grace toward me is so great! You have rescued me from the lowest part of Sh'ol.
God, arrogant men are rising against me, a gang of brutes is seeking my life, and to you they pay no attention.
But you, Adonai, are a merciful, compassionate God, slow to anger and rich in grace and truth.
Turn to me, and show me your favor; strengthen your servant, save your slave-girl's son. Give me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed, because you, ADONAI, have helped and comforted me.
