1 Turn your ear toward me, O Lord. Answer me, because I am oppressed and needy. 2 Protect me, because I am faithful to you. Save your servant who trusts you. You are my God. 3 Have pity on me, O Lord, because I call out to you all day long. 4 Give me joy, O Lord, because I lift my soul to you. 5 You, O Lord, are good and forgiving, full of mercy toward everyone who calls out to you. 6 Open your ears to my prayer, O Lord. Pay attention when I plead for mercy. 7 When I am in trouble, I call out to you because you answer me.
8 No god is like you, O Lord. No one can do what you do. 9 All the nations that you have made will bow in your presence, O Lord. They will honor you. 10 Indeed, you are great, a worker of miracles. You alone are God. 11 Teach me your way, O Lord, so that I may live in your truth. Focus my heart on fearing you. 12 I will give thanks to you with all my heart, O Lord my God. I will honor you forever 13 because your mercy toward me is great. You have rescued me from the depths of hell.
14 O God, arrogant people attack me, and a mob of ruthless people seeks my life. They think nothing of you. 15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God. You are patient, always faithful and ready to forgive. 16 Turn toward me, and have pity on me. Give me your strength because I am your servant. Save me because I am the son of your female servant. 17 Grant me some proof of your goodness so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame. You, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
