Psalm 86


Great Is Your Steadfast Love



 A PRAYER OF DAVID. 


      1 Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, 

      for I am poor and needy. 

      2 Preserve my life, for I am godly; 

      save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God. 

      3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, 

      for to you do I cry all the day. 

      4 Gladden the soul of your servant, 

      for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 

      5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, 

      abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. 

      6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; 

      listen to my plea for grace. 

      7 In the day of my trouble I call upon you, 

      for you answer me. 


      8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, 

      nor are there any works like yours. 

      9 All the nations you have made shall come 

      and worship before you, O Lord, 

      and shall glorify your name. 

      10 For you are great and do wondrous things; 

      you alone are God. 

      11 Teach me your way, O LORD, 

      that I may walk in your truth; 

      unite my heart to fear your name. 

      12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, 

      and I will glorify your name forever. 

      13 For great is your steadfast love toward me; 

      you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. 


      14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me; 

      a band of ruthless men seeks my life, 

      and they do not set you before them. 

      15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, 

      slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 

      16 Turn to me and be gracious to me; 

      give your strength to your servant, 

      and save the son of your maidservant. 

      17 Show me a sign of your favor, 

      that those who hate me may see and be put to shame 

      because you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
