Psalm 86
NASB 1977►► 
A Psalm of Supplication and Trust.

A Prayer of David.

     1Incline Thine ear, O LORD, and answer me;
            For I am afflicted and needy.

     2Do preserve my soul, for I am a godly man;
            O Thou my God, save Thy servant who trusts in Thee.

     3Be gracious to me, O Lord,
            For to Thee I cry all day long.

     4Make glad the soul of Thy servant,
            For to Thee, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

     5For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive,
            And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon Thee.

     6Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer;
            And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

     7In the day of my trouble I shall call upon Thee,
            For Thou wilt answer me.

     8There is no one like Thee among the gods, O Lord;
            Nor are there any works like Thine.

     9All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord;
            And they shall glorify Thy name.

     10For Thou art great and doest wondrous deeds;
            Thou alone art God.

     11Teach me Thy way, O LORD;
            I will walk in Thy truth;
            Unite my heart to fear Thy name.

     12I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
            And will glorify Thy name forever.

     13For Thy lovingkindness toward me is great,
            And Thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

     14O God, arrogant men have risen up against me,
            And a band of violent men have sought my life,
            And they have not set Thee before them.

     15But Thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious,
            Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

     16Turn to me, and be gracious to me;
            Oh grant Thy strength to Thy servant,
            And save the son of Thy handmaid.

     17Show me a sign for good,
            That those who hate me may see it, and be ashamed,
            Because Thou, O LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.
