86 Lord, listen and answer me, for I am afflicted and needy. 2 Protect me, for I am faithful;[a] My God, deliver your servant who trusts in you. 3 Have mercy on me Lord, for I call on you all day long. 4 Your servant rejoices, because, Lord, I set my hope on[b] you. 5 Indeed you, Lord, are kind and forgiving, overflowing with gracious love to everyone who calls on you.
6 Hear my prayer, Lord; attend to my prayer of supplication.
7 In my troubled times I will call on you, for you will answer me.
8 No one can compare with you among the gods, Lord; No one can accomplish[c] your work. 9 All the nations that you have established will come and worship you, my Lord. They will honor your name. 10 For you are great, and you are doing awesome things; you alone are God.
11 Teach me your ways, Lord, that I may walk in your truth; let me wholeheartedly[d] revere your name.
12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole being; and I will honor your name continuously. 13 For great is your gracious love to me; you’ve delivered me from the depths of Sheol.[e]
14 God, arrogant men rise up against me, while a company of ruthless individuals want to kill me. They do not have regard for you.[f] 15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate God, merciful and patient,[g] with unending gracious love and faithfulness.
16 Return to me and have mercy on me; clothe your servant with your strength and deliver the son of your maid servant.
17 Show me a sign of your goodness, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. For you, Lord, will help and comfort me.
