Psalm 86

1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me, for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my soul; for I am merciful, O thou my God, save thy slave that trusts in thee.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord, for I cry unto thee daily.
4 Rejoice the soul of thy slave, for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For thou, Lord, art good and ready to forgive and plenteous in mercy unto all those that call upon thee.
6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord, neither is there any other who does thy works.
9 All the Gentiles whom thou hast made shall come and humble themselves before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
10 For thou art great and doest wondrous things; thou alone art God.
11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth; firm up my heart that I might fear thy name.
12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
13 For great is thy mercy upon me, and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest part of Sheol.
14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul and have not set thee before them.
15 But thou, O Lord, art a merciful and gracious God, longsuffering and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16 O look into me and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy slave and keep the son of thine handmaid.
17 Show me a token for good that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed because thou, O LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.
