Psalm 86

Tried but Trusting

A prayer of David.

1Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me,

for I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly.

You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You.

3 Be merciful to me, O Lord,

for I call to You all day long.

4 Bring joy to Your servant,

for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 For You, O Lord, are kind and forgiving,

rich in loving devotion to all who call on You.

6 Hear my prayer, O LORD,

and attend to my plea for mercy.

7 In the day of my distress I call on You,

because You answer me.

8 O Lord, there is none like You among the gods,

nor any works like Yours.

9 All the nations You have made

will come and bow before You, O Lord,

and they will glorify Your name.

10 For You are great and perform wonders;

You alone are God.

11 Teach me Your way, O LORD,

that I may walk in Your truth.

Give me an undivided heart,

that I may fear Your name.

12 I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart;

I will glorify Your name forever.

13 For great is Your loving devotion to me;

You have delivered me from the depths of Sheol.

14 The arrogant rise against me, O God;

a band of ruthless men seeks my life,

with no regard for You.

15 But You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,

slow to anger, abounding in loving devotion and faithfulness.

16 Turn to me and have mercy;

grant Your strength to Your servant;

save the son of Your maidservant.

17 Show me a sign of Your goodness,

that my enemies may see and be ashamed;

for You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
