A Psalm of Supplication and Trust.
A Prayer of David.
86 (A)Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me;
For I am (B)afflicted and needy.
2 (C)Preserve my [a]soul, for I am a (D)godly man;
O You my God, save Your servant who (E)trusts in You.
3 Be (F)gracious to me, O Lord,
For (G)to You I cry all day long.
4 Make glad the soul of Your servant,
For to You, O Lord, (H)I lift up my soul.
5 For You, Lord, are (I)good, and (J)ready to forgive,
And (K)abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.
- Psalm 86:2 Or life
