Psalms Chapter 86 - New International Version

1. Psalm 86 A prayer of David.

1. Hear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.

2. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.

3. Have mercy on 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. You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.

6. Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.

7. In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.

8. Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.

9. All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.

10. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

11. Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will 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 love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. [1]

14. The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.

15. But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

16. Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant. [2]

17. Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
