Psalm 86
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

To You, O Lord, I Lift Up My Soul

A Prayer of David.

1Incline Your ear, O Yahweh, and answer me;

For I am afflicted and needy.

2Keep my [†]soul, for I am a holy one;

O You my God, save Your slave who trusts in You.

3Be gracious to me, O Lord,

For to You I call all day long.

4Make glad the soul of Your slave,

For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5For You, Lord, are good, and by nature forgiving,

And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.

6Give ear, O Yahweh, to my prayer;

And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

7In the day of my distress I shall call upon You,

For You will answer me.

8There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord,

Nor are there any works like Yours.

9All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord,

And they shall glorify Your name.

10For You are great and do [†]wondrous deeds;

You alone are God.

11Teach me Your way, O Yahweh;

I will walk in Your truth;

Unite my heart to fear Your name.

12I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart,

And will glorify Your name forever.

13For Your lovingkindness toward me is great,

And You have delivered my soul from Sheol below.

14O God, arrogant men have risen up against me,

And [†]a band of ruthless men have sought my [†]life,

And they have not set You before them.

15But You, O Lord, are a God compassionate and gracious,

Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and [†]truth.

16Turn to me, and be gracious to me;

Oh grant Your strength to Your slave,

And save the son of Your maidservant.

17[†]Show me a sign for good,

That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed,

Because You, O Yahweh, have helped me and comforted me.
