Psalm 86
New American Standard Bible 1995International Standard Version
1A Prayer of David. Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me; For I am afflicted and needy.1LORD, listen and answer me, for I am afflicted and needy.
2Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; O You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You.2Protect me, for I am faithful; My God, deliver your servant who trusts in you.
3Be gracious to me, O Lord, For to You I cry all day long.3Have mercy on me Lord, for I call on you all day long.
4Make glad the soul of Your servant, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.4Your servant rejoices, because, Lord, I set my hope on you.
5For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.5Indeed you, Lord, are kind and forgiving, overflowing with gracious love to everyone who calls on you.
6Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications!6Hear my prayer, LORD; attend to my prayer of supplication.
7In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, For You will answer me.7In my troubled times I will call on you, for you will answer me.
8There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours.8No one can compare with you among the gods, Lord; No one can accomplish your work.
9All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And they shall glorify Your name.9All the nations that you have established will come and worship you, my Lord. They will honor your name.
10For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God.10For you are great, and you are doing awesome things; you alone are God.
11Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.11Teach me your ways, LORD, that I may walk in your truth; let me wholeheartedly revere your name.
12I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.12I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole being; and I will honor your name continuously.
13For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.13For great is your gracious love to me; you've delivered me 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 You before them.14God, arrogant men rise up against me, while a company of ruthless individuals want to kill me. They do not have regard for you.
15But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.15But you, Lord, are a compassionate God, merciful and patient, with unending gracious love and faithfulness.
16Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your handmaid.16Return to me and have mercy on me; clothe your servant with your strength and deliver the son of your maid servant.
17Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.17Show me a sign of your goodness, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. For you, LORD, will help and comfort me.
