ESV — Psalm 86

Great Is Your Steadfast Love

iA Prayer of David.

86  jIncline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,

for I am kpoor and needy.

Preserve my life, for I am lgodly;

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

nBe gracious to me, O Lord,

for to you do I cry all the day.

Gladden the soul of your servant,

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

For you, O Lord, are good and pforgiving,

qabounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

rGive ear, O Lord, to my prayer;

listen to my plea for grace.

In sthe day of my trouble I call upon you,

tfor you answer me.

There is unone like you among the gods, O Lord,

vnor are there any works like yours.

wAll the nations you have made shall come

and worship before you, O Lord,

and shall glorify your name.

10  For xyou are great and ydo wondrous things;

zyou alone are God.

11  aTeach me your way, O Lord,

that I may bwalk in your truth;

cunite 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  dFor great is your steadfast love toward me;

you have edelivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14  O God, insolent men have frisen 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 gmerciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

16  hTurn to me and be gracious to me;

give your strength to iyour servant,

and save ithe son of your maidservant.

17  jShow me a sign of your kfavor,

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

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