Psalm 86

A prayer by David.

Turn your ear toward me, O Yahweh.
    Answer me, because I am oppressed and needy.
Protect me, because I am faithful to you.
    Save your servant who trusts you. You are my Elohim.
Have pity on me, O Adonay,
    because I call out to you all day long.
Give me joy, O Adonay,
    because I lift my soul to you.
You, O Adonay, are good and forgiving,
    full of mercy toward everyone who calls out to you.
Open your ears to my prayer, O Yahweh.
    Pay attention when I plead for mercy.
When I am in trouble, I call out to you
    because you answer me.

No god is like you, O Adonay.
    No one can do what you do.
All the nations that you have made
    will bow in your presence, O Adonay.
        They will honor you.
10 Indeed, you are great, a worker of miracles.
    You alone are Elohim.
11 Teach me your way, O Yahweh,
    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 Adonay my Elohim.
    I will honor you forever
13 because your mercy toward me is great.
    You have rescued me from the depths of hell.

14 O Elohim, arrogant people attack me,
    and a mob of ruthless people seeks my life.
        They think nothing of you.
15 But you, O Adonay, 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 Yahweh, have helped me and comforted me.
