Psalm 86
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A PRAYER OF DAVID. Incline, O YHWH, Your ear, "" Answer me, for I [am] poor and needy.

2Keep my soul, for I [am] pious, "" Save Your servant who is trusting to You, O You, my God.

3Favor me, O Lord, for I call to You all the day.

4Make glad the soul of Your servant, "" For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5For You, Lord, [are] good and forgiving, "" And abundant in kindness to all calling You.

6Hear, O YHWH, my prayer, "" And attend to the voice of my supplications.

7In a day of my distress I call You, "" For You answer me.

8There is none like You among the gods, O Lord, "" And like Your works there are none.

9All nations that You have made "" Come and bow themselves before You, O Lord, "" And give honor to Your Name.

10For You [are] great, and doing wonders, "" You [are] God alone.

11Show me, O YHWH, Your way, "" I walk in Your truth, "" My heart rejoices to fear Your Name.

12I confess You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, "" And I honor Your Name for all time.

13For Your kindness [is] great toward me, "" And You have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14O God, the proud have risen up against me, "" And a company of the terrible sought my soul, "" And have not placed You before them,

15And You, O Lord, [are] God, merciful and gracious, "" Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth.

16Look to me, and favor me, "" Give Your strength to Your servant, "" And give salvation to a son of Your handmaid.

17Do with me a sign for good, "" And those hating me see and are ashamed, "" For You, O YHWH, have helped me, "" Indeed, You have comforted me!
