Psalm 86 - Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am oppressed and needy. 2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly; You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You. 3 Have mercy on me, O Lord for to You I cry all day long. 4 Gladden the soul of Your servant,
for to You, O Lord, I lift my soul.
5 For You, Lord, are good, and forgiving, abounding in kindness to all who call on You . 6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer, and attend to my plea for mercy. 7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord; neither are there any works like Your works.
9 All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name. 10 For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You are God alone.
11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, that I will walk in Your truth; bind my heart to fear Your name. 12 I will give You thanks, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forever. 13 For great is Your mercy toward me, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14 O God, insolent men have risen against me, and bands of violent men have sought my life; they have not set You before them. 15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in mercy and truth. 16 Turn to me and have mercy on me; give Your strength to Your servant, and save the humble son of Your female servant.
17 Show me a sign of Your favor, that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed because You, Lord, have helped and comforted me.
