Psalm 86

A Prayer of David.


1O Lord, do thou bow down thine ear,

and hear me graciously;

Because I sore afflicted am,

and am in poverty.

2Because I’m holy, let my soul

by thee preserved be:

O thou my God, thy servant save,

that puts his trust in thee.

3Sith unto thee I daily cry,

be merciful to me.

4Rejoice thy servant’s soul; for, Lord,

I lift my soul to thee.

5For thou art gracious, O Lord,

and ready to forgive;

And rich in mercy, all that call

upon thee to relieve.

6Hear, Lord, my pray’r; unto the voice

of my request attend:

7In troublous times I’ll call on thee;

for thou wilt answer send.

8Lord, there is none among the gods

that may with thee compare;

And like the works which thou hast done,

not any work is there.

9All nations whom thou mad’st shall come

and worship rev’rently

Before thy face; and they, O Lord,

thy name shall glorify.

10Because thou art exceeding great,

and works by thee are done

Which are to be admir’d; and thou

art God thyself alone.

11Teach me thy way, and in thy truth,

O Lord, then walk will I;

Unite my heart, that I thy name

may fear continually.

12O Lord my God, with all my heart

to thee I will give praise;

And I the glory will ascribe

unto thy name always:

13Because thy mercy toward me

in greatness doth excel;

And thou deliver’d hast my soul

out from the lowest hell.

14O God, the proud against me rise,

and vi’lent men have met,

That for my soul have sought; and thee

before them have not set.

15But thou art full of pity, Lord,

a God most gracious,

Long-suffering, and in thy truth

and mercy plenteous.

16O turn to me thy countenance,

and mercy on me have;

Thy servant strengthen, and the son

of thine own handmaid save.

17Shew me a sign for good, that they

which do me hate may see,

And be asham’d; because thou, Lord,

didst help and comfort me.
