Psalm 86
New American Standard Bible 1995NET Bible
1A Prayer of David. Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me; For I am afflicted and needy.1A prayer of David. Listen O LORD! Answer me! For I am oppressed 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 loyal! O 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, O Lord, for I cry out to you all day long!
4Make glad the soul of Your servant, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.4Make your servant glad, for to you, O Lord, I pray!
5For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.5Certainly O Lord, you are kind and forgiving, and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to you.
6Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications!6O LORD, hear my prayer! Pay attention to my plea for mercy!
7In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, For You will answer me.7In my time of trouble I cry out to you, for you will answer me.
8There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours.8None can compare to you among the gods, O Lord! Your exploits are incomparable!
9All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And they shall glorify Your name.9All the nations, whom you created, will come and worship you, O Lord. They will honor your name.
10For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God.10For you are great and do amazing things. You alone are God.
11Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.11O LORD, teach me how you want me to live! Then I will obey your commands. Make me wholeheartedly committed to you!
12I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.12O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart! I will honor your name continually!
13For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.13For you will extend your great loyal love to me, and will deliver my life 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.14O God, arrogant men attack me; a gang of ruthless men, who do not respect you, seek my life.
15But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.15But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God. You are patient and demonstrate great loyal 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.16Turn toward me and have mercy on me! Give your servant your strength! Deliver your slave!
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 evidence of your favor! Then those who hate me will see it and be ashamed, for you, O LORD, will help me and comfort me.
