Psalm 86

Psalm 86 is the 86th psalm of the Book of Psalms. It was a prayer of David.

A psalm of David

1    Hear me, Lord, and answer me,

 for I am poor and needy.

2    Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;

 save your servant who trusts in you.
 You are my God;

3    have mercy on me, Lord,

 for I call to you all day long.

4    Bring joy to your servant, Lord,

 for I put my trust in you.

5    You, Lord, are forgiving and good,

 abounding in love to all who call to you.

6    Hear my prayer, Lord;

 listen to my cry for mercy.

7    When I am in distress, I call to you,

 because you answer me.

8    Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;

 no deeds can compare with yours.

9    All the nations you have made

 will come and worship before you, Lord;
 they will bring glory to your name.

10   For you are great and do marvelous deeds;

 you alone are God.

11   Teach me your way, Lord,

 that I may rely on your faithfulness;
 give me an undivided heart,
 that I may fear your name.

12   I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;

 I will glorify your name forever.

13   For great is your love toward me;

 you have delivered me from the depths,
 from the realm of the dead.

14   Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God;

 ruthless people are trying to kill me—
 they have no regard for you.

15   But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,

 slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

16   Turn to me and have mercy on me;

 show your strength in behalf of your servant;
 save me, because I serve you
 just as my mother did.

17   Give me a sign of your goodness,

 that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
 for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

Psalm 86, New International Version.
