Psalms 86

A prayer of David.
 1  Bend down, O LORD, and hear my prayer;
  answer me, for I need your help.
 2  Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
  Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
  You are my God.
 3  Be merciful to me, O Lord,
  for I am calling on you constantly.
 4  Give me happiness, O Lord,
  for I give myself to you.
 5  O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
  so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
 6  Listen closely to my prayer, O LORD;
  hear my urgent cry.
 7  I will call to you whenever I'm in trouble,
  and you will answer me.

 8  No pagan god is like you, O Lord.
  None can do what you do!
 9  All the nations you made
  will come and bow before you, Lord;
  they will praise your holy name.
 10  For you are great and perform wonderful deeds.
  You alone are God.

 11  Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you.  12  With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God.
  I will give glory to your name forever,
 13  for your love for me is very great.
  You have rescued me from the depths of death. [13] 

 14  O God, insolent people rise up against me;
  a violent gang is trying to kill me.
  You mean nothing to them.
 15  But you, O Lord,
  are a God of compassion and mercy,
slow to get angry
  and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.
 16  Look down and have mercy on me.
  Give your strength to your servant;
  save me, the son of your servant.
 17  Send me a sign of your favor.
  Then those who hate me will be put to shame,
  for you, O LORD, help and comfort me.
<<  86:13 Hebrew of Sheol.
