King James 2000
A Prayer of David.
1Bow down your ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
2Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O you my God, save your servant that trusts in you.
3Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto you daily.
4Rejoice the soul of your servant: for unto you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and abundant in mercy unto all them that call upon you.
6Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7In the day of my trouble I will call upon you: for you will answer me.
8Among the gods there is none like unto you, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto your works.
9All nations which you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord; and shall glorify your name.
10For you are great, and do wondrous things: you are God alone.
11Teach me your way, O LORD; I will walk in your truth: unite my heart to fear your name.
12I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify your name forevermore.
13For great is your mercy toward me: and you have delivered my soul from the depths of sheol.
14O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set you before them.
15But you, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in mercy and truth.
16O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give your strength unto your servant, and save the son of your handmaid.
17Show me a sign for good; that they who hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because you, LORD, have helped me, and comforted me.
