A Davidic prayer.
for I am poor and needy. r
2 Protect my life, for I am faithful. s
You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You. t
for I call to You all day long. u
because I turn to You, Lord. v
5 For You, Lord, are kind and ready to forgive, w
rich in faithful love to all who call on You. x
listen to my plea for mercy. y
for You will answer me. z
and there are no works like Yours. a
will come and bow down before You, Lord,
and will honor Your name. b
You alone are God. c
11 Teach me Your way, * Yahweh,
and I will live by Your truth.
and will honor Your name forever. e
a gang of ruthless men seeks my life.
They have no regard for You. g
slow to anger and rich in faithful love and truth. h
Give Your strength to Your servant;
save the son of Your female servant. i
my enemies will see and be put to shame
because You, Lord, have helped and comforted me. j
