Psalm 8621

A prayer of David.

86:1 Listen1 O Lord! Answer me!

For I am oppressed and needy.

86:2 Protect me,2 for I am loyal!

O my God, deliver your servant, who trusts in you!

86:3 Have mercy on me,3 O Lord,

for I cry out to you all day long!

86:4 Make your servant4 glad,

for to you, O Lord, I pray!5

86:5 Certainly6 O Lord, you are kind7 and forgiving,

and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to you.

86:6 O Lord, hear my prayer!

Pay attention to my plea for mercy!

86:7 In my time of trouble I cry out to you,

for you will answer me.

86:8 None can compare to you among the gods, O Lord!

Your exploits are incomparable!8

86:9 All the nations, whom you created,

will come and worship you,9 O Lord.

They will honor your name.

86:10 For you are great and do amazing things.

You alone are God.

86:11 O Lord, teach me how you want me to live!10

Then I will obey your commands.11

Make me wholeheartedly committed to you!12

86:12 O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!

I will honor your name continually!13

86:13 For you will extend your great loyal love to me,14

and will deliver my life15 from the depths of Sheol.16

86:14 O God, arrogant men attack me;17

a gang18 of ruthless men, who do not respect you, seek my life.19

86:15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God.

You are patient20 and demonstrate great loyal love and faithfulness.21

86:16 Turn toward me and have mercy on me!

Give your servant your strength!

Deliver your slave!22

86:17 Show me evidence of your favor!23

Then those who hate me will see it and be ashamed,24

for you, O Lord, will help me and comfort me.25
