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!
