Psalm 86
1 Bow down THINE EAR, O LORD, HEAR me: for I am poor and needy.

2 PRESERVE MY SOUL; FOR I AM HOLY: O THOU MY GOD, SAVE THY SERVANT THAT TRUSTETH IN THEE.

3 BE MERCIFUL UNTO ME, O LORD: FOR I CRY UNTO THEE DAILY.

4 REJOICE the soul of THY servant: FOR UNTO THEE, O LORD, DO I LIFT UP MY SOUL.

5 FOR THOU, LORD, ART GOOD, AND READY TO FORGIVE; AND PLENTEOUS IN MERCY UNTO ALL THEM THAT CALL UPON THEE.

6 GIVE EAR, O LORD, UNTO MY PRAYER; AND ATTEND TO THE VOICE OF MY SUPPLICATIONS.

7 IN THE DAY OF MY TROUBLE I WILL CALL UPON THEE: FOR THOU WILT ANSWER ME.

8 Among the gods there is NONE LIKE unto THEE, O LORD; NEITHER ARE THERE ANY WORKS LIKE UNTO THY WORKS.

9 ALL NATIONS WHOM THOU HAST MADE SHALL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE THEE, O LORD; AND SHALL GLORIFY THY NAME.

10 FOR THOU ART GREAT, AND DOEST WONDROUS THINGS: THOU ART GOD ALONE.

11 TEACH ME THY WAY, O LORD; I WILL WALK IN THY TRUTH: UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR THY NAME.

12 I WILL PRAISE THEE, O LORD MY GOD, WITH ALL MY HEART: AND I WILL GLORIFY THY NAME FOR EVERMORE.

13 FOR GREAT IS THY MERCY TOWARD ME: AND THOU HAST DELIVERED MY SOUL FROM THE LOWEST HELL.

14 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.

15 BUT THOU, O LORD, ART A GOD FULL OF COMPASSION, AND GRACIOUS, LONG-SUFFERING, AND PLENTEOUS IN MERCY AND TRUTH.

16 O turn unto me, and have MERCY upon me; GIVE THY STRENGTH unto THY servant, and SAVE the son of THINE
handmaid.

17 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.
