Psalms 86

Psalm 86 KJV

1David imploreth God's aid because of his need and religious faith; 5and of the power and goodness of God: 11he prayeth for grace, and promiseth praise for past mercies: 14complaining of the proud, he craveth some token of God's favour.
A Prayer aof David.
1 Bow 1down thine ear, O Lord, hear me: for 2I am poor and needy.
2 1Preserve my soul; for I am aholy: O thou my God, save thy servant that 2trusteth in thee.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: 1for I cry unto thee adaily.
4 1Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do 2I lift up my soul.
5 For 1thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
6 1Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7 In 1the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
8 Among 1the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
9 1All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
10 For 1thou art great, and doest wondrous things: 2thou art God alone.
11 1Teach me thy way, O Lord; 2I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
12 I 1will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
13 For 1great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast 2delivered my soul from the alowest hell.
14 O God, the 1proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of aviolent men have sought after my soul; and 2have not set thee before them.
15 But 1thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16 O 1turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; 2give thy strength unto 3thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
17 Shew me 1a token for good; 2that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, Lord, 3hast holpen me, and comforted me.
