Supplication for Help against Enemies

A Prayer of David.

86 Incline thy ear, O Lord, and answer me,
    for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am godly;
    save thy servant who trusts in thee.
Thou art my God; be gracious to me, O Lord,
    for to thee do I cry all the day.
Gladden the soul of thy servant,
    for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving,
    abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
    hearken to my cry of supplication.
In the day of my trouble I call on thee,
    for thou dost answer me.

There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord,
    nor are there any works like thine.
All the nations thou hast made shall come
    and bow down before thee, O Lord,
    and shall glorify thy name.
10 For thou art great and doest wondrous things,
    thou alone art God.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord,
    that I may walk in thy truth;
    unite my heart to fear thy name.
