1 Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me; For I am afflicted and needy. 1 Hear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; O You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You. 2 Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.
3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, For to You I cry all day long. 3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.
4 Make glad the soul of Your servant, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 4 Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. 5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.
6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications! 6 Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.
7 In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, For You will answer me. 7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
8 There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours. 8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And they shall glorify Your name. 9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.
10 For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God. 10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.
11 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
12 I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever. 12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
13 For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. 13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.
14 O God, arrogant men have risen up against me, And a band of violent men have sought my life, And they have not set You before them. 14 The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.
15 But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth. 15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your handmaid. 16 Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.
17 Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me. 17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
