A prayer of David."

1 Hear me, LORD, and answer1 me, for I am poor and needy. 2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you.2 You are my God; 3 have mercy3 on me, Lord, for I call4 to you all day long. 4 Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust5 in you. 5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love6 to all who call to you. 6 Hear my prayer, LORD; listen to my cry7 for mercy. 7 When I am in distress,8 I call9 to you, because you answer10 me. 8 Among the gods11 there is none like you,12 Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. 9 All the nations you have made will come13 and worship14 before you, Lord; they will bring glory15 to your name. 10 For you are great16 and do marvelous deeds;17 you alone18 are God. 11 Teach me your way,19 LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness;20 give me an undivided21 heart, that I may fear22 your name. 12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;23 I will glorify your name forever. 13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me24 from the depths, from the realm of the dead.25 14 Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless people seeks my life-- they have no regard for you.26 15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious27 God, slow to anger,28 abounding29 in love and faithfulness.30 16 Turn to me31 and have mercy32 on me; show your strength33 in behalf of your servant and save the son of a woman who served you before me.34 17 Give me a sign35 of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
