Hear, O LORD, and answer1 me, for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.23
Have mercy3 on me, O Lord, for I call4 to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift5 up my soul.
You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love6 to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry7 for mercy.
In the day of my trouble8 I will call9 to you, for you will answer10 me.
Among the gods11 there is none like you,12 O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made will come13 and worship14 before you, O Lord; they will bring glory15 to your name.
For you are great16 and do marvelous deeds;17 you alone18 are God.
Teach me your way,19 O LORD, and I will walk in your truth;20 give me an undivided21 heart, that I may fear22 your name.
I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart;23 I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me24 from the depths of the grave.a2514
The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.2615
But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious27 God, slow to anger,28 abounding29 in love and faithfulness.3016
Turn to me31 and have mercy32 on me; grant your strength33 to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.b3417
Give me a sign35 of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
