||A Prayer of David.
1 aBow down thine ear, O Lord, hear me:
For bI am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my soul; for I am ||holy:
O thou my God, save thy servant cthat trusteth in thee.
3 dBe merciful unto me, O Lord:
For funto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ffready to forgive;
And gplenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
6 hGive ear, O Lord, unto my prayer;
7 jIn the day of my trouble I will call upon thee:
kFor thou wilt answer me.
8 lAmong the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord;
Neither are there any works mlike unto thy works.
9 All nations whom thou hast made nshall come
And oworship before thee, O Lord;
And shall glorify thy name.
rThou art God alone.
Unite my heart to fear thy name.
And I will glorify thy name for evermore.
14 O God, wthe proud are risen against me,
And the assemblies of †violent men have sought after my soul;
And have not set thee before them.
15 xBut thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious,
Longsuffering, and gplenteous in mercy and truth.
Give thy strength unto zthy servant,
And save zthe son of thine handmaid.
That they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed:
Because thou, Lord, hast cholpen me, and comforted me.
