(86) A Prayer of David.
O Lord, incline your ear, and listen to me; for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my soul, for I am holy; save your servant, O God, who hopes in you.
Pity me, O Lord: for to you will I cry all the day.
Rejoice the sold of your servant: for to you, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
For you, O Lord, are kind, and gentle; and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon you.
Give ear to my prayer, o Lord; and attend to the voice of my supplication.
In the day of my trouble I cried to you: for you did hear me.
There is none like to you, O Lord, among the god; and there are no works like to your works.
All nations whom you have made shall come, and shall worship before you, O Lord; and shall glorify your name.
10 For you are great, and do wonders: you are the only and the great God.
11 Guide me, O Lord, in your way, and I will walk in your truth: let my heart rejoice, that I may fear your name.
12 I will give you thanks, O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify your name for ever.
13 For your mercy is great toward me; and you have delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
14 O God, transgressors have risen up against me, and an assembly of violent men have sought my life; and have not set you before them.
15 But you, O Lord God, are compassionate and merciful, longsuffering, and abundant in mercy and true.
16 Look you upon me, and have mercy upon me: give your strength to your servant, and save the son of your handmaid.
17 Establish with me a token for good; and let them that hate me see it and be ashamed; because you, O Lord, have helped me, and comforted me.
