6 Hear, LORD, my prayer. Listen to the voice of my petitions. 6 Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call on 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, Lord, Nor any deeds like your deeds. 8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord. 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.

13 For your lovingkindness is great toward me. You have delivered my soul from the lowest She'ol. 13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.
14 God, the proud have risen up against me. A company of violent men have sought after my soul, And they don't hold regard for 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, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, 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 have mercy on me! Give your strength to your servant. 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 of your goodness, That those who hate me may see it, and be put to shame, Because you, 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.
