16 Turn unto me, and have mercy upon me: give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the [a]son of thine handmaid.

17 Show a token of thy goodness toward me, that they which hate me, may see it, and be ashamed, because thou, O Lord, hast helped me and comforted me.


  1. Psalm 86:16 He boasteth not of his own virtues, but confesseth that God of his free goodness hath ever been merciful unto him, and given him power against his enemies, as to one of his own household.
