Psalm 86
JPS Tanakh 1917
1A Prayer of David.

Incline Thine ear, O LORD, and answer me;
For I am poor and needy.
2Keep my soul, for I am godly;
O Thou my God, save Thy servant that trusteth in Thee.
3Be gracious unto me, O Lord;
For unto Thee do I cry all the day.
4Rejoice the soul of Thy servant;
For unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to pardon,
And plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.

6Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer;
And attend unto the voice of my supplications.
7In the day of my trouble I call upon Thee;
For Thou wilt answer me.
8There is none like unto Thee among the gods, O Lord,
And there are no works like Thine.
9All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and prostrate themselves before Thee, O Lord;
And they shall glorify Thy name.
10For Thou art great, and doest wondrous things;
Thou art God alone.

11Teach me, O LORD, Thy way, that I may walk in Thy truth;
Make one my heart to fear Thy name.
12I will thank Thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart;
And I will glorify Thy name for evermore.
13For great is Thy mercy toward me;
And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest nether-world.

14O God, the proud are risen up against me,
And the company of violent men have sought after my soul,
And have not set Thee before them.
15But Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion and gracious,
Slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16O turn unto me, and be gracious unto me;
Give Thy strength unto Thy servant,
And save the son of Thy handmaid.
17Work in my behalf a sign for good;
That they that hate me may see it, and be put to shame,
Because Thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
