86 Incline Your ear, Lord, and answer me; For I am afflicted and needy. 2 Protect my [a]soul, for I am godly; You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You. 3 Be gracious to me, Lord, For I call upon You all day long. 4 Make the soul of Your servant joyful, For to You, Lord, I lift up my soul. 5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all who call upon You. 6 Listen, Lord, to my prayer; And give Your attention to the sound of my pleading! 7 On the day of my trouble I will call upon You, For You will answer me. 8 There is no one like You among the gods, Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours. 9 All nations whom You have made will come and worship before You, Lord, And they will glorify Your name. 10 For You are great, and you do [b]wondrous deeds; You alone are God.
11 Teach me Your way, Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. 12 I will give thanks to You, Lord my God, with all my heart, And I will glorify Your name forever. 13 For Your graciousness toward me is great, And You have saved my soul from the [c]depths of [d]Sheol.
14 God, arrogant men have risen up against me, And a gang of violent men have sought my [e]life, And they have not set You before them. 15 But You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, Slow to anger and abundant in mercy and [f]truth. 16 Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Grant Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your maidservant. 17 Show me a sign of good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
