Psalm 86


O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Bow down thine ear,
O LORD, hear me:
for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my soul;
for I am holy:
O thou my God,
save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

Be merciful unto me, O Lord:
for I cry unto thee daily.
Rejoice the soul of thy servant:
for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer;
and attend to the voice of my supplications.

In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee:
for thou wilt answer me.
Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord;
neither are there any works like unto thy works.
All nations whom thou hast made
shall come and worship before thee, O Lord;
and shall glorify thy name.
For thou art great, and doest wondrous things:

Thou art God alone.

Teach me thy way, O LORD;
I will walk in thy truth:
unite my heart to fear thy name.
I will praise thee,
O Lord my God, with all my heart:
and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
For great is thy mercy toward me:
and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
O God, the proud are risen against me,
and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul;
and have not set thee before them.

But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion,
and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me;
give thy strength unto thy servant,
and save the son of thine handmaid.
Shew me a token for good;
that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed:
because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
