Psalm 86 (WEBP)

[1] Hear, Yahweh, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
[2] Preserve my soul, for I am godly. You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you.
[3] Be merciful to me, Lord, for I call to you all day long.
[4] Bring joy to the soul of your servant, for to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul.
[5] For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you.
[6] Hear, Yahweh, my prayer. Listen to the voice of my petitions.
[7] In the day of my trouble I will call on you, for you will answer me.
[8] There is no one like you among the gods, Lord, nor any deeds like your deeds.
[9] All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord. They shall glorify your name.
[10] For you are great, and do wondrous things. You are God alone.
[11] Teach me your way, Yahweh. I will walk in your truth. Make my heart undivided to fear your name.
[12] I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole heart. I will glorify your name forever more.
[13] For your loving kindness is great toward me. You have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.°
[14] God, the proud have risen up against me. A company of violent men have sought after my soul, and they don’t hold regard for you before them.
[15] But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth.
[16] Turn to me, and have mercy on me! Give your strength to your servant. Save the son of your servant.
[17] Show me a sign of your goodness, that those who hate me may see it, and be shamed, because you, Yahweh, have helped me, and comforted me.

Psalm 86 (KJVS)

[1] «A Prayer H8605 of David H1732.» Bow down H5186 (8685) thine ear H241, O LORD H3068, hear H6030 (8798) me: for I [am] poor H6041 and needy H34.
[2] Preserve H8104 (8798) my soul H5315; for I [am] holy H2623: O thou my God H430, save H3467 (8685) thy servant H5650 that trusteth H982 (8802) in thee.
[3] Be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me, O Lord H136: for I cry H7121 (8799) unto thee daily H3117.
[4] Rejoice H8055 (8761) the soul H5315 of thy servant H5650: for unto thee, O Lord H136, do I lift up H5375 (8799) my soul H5315.
[5] For thou, Lord H136, [art] good H2896, and ready to forgive H5546; and plenteous H7227 in mercy H2617 unto all them that call H7121 (8802) upon thee.
[6] Give ear H238 (8685), O LORD H3068, unto my prayer H8605; and attend H7181 (8685) to the voice H6963 of my supplications H8469.
[7] In the day H3117 of my trouble H6869 I will call H7121 (8799) upon thee: for thou wilt answer H6030 (8799) me.
[8] Among the gods H430 [there is] none like unto thee, O Lord H136; neither [are there any works] like unto thy works H4639.
[9] All nations H1471 whom thou hast made H6213 (8804) shall come H935 (8799) and worship H7812 (8691) before H6440 thee, O Lord H136; and shall glorify H3513 (8762) thy name H8034.
[10] For thou [art] great H1419, and doest H6213 (8802) wondrous things H6381 (8737): thou [art] God H430 alone.
[11] Teach H3384 (8685) me thy way H1870, O LORD H3068; I will walk H1980 (8762) in thy truth H571: unite H3161 (8761) my heart H3824 to fear H3372 (8800) thy name H8034.
[12] I will praise H3034 (8686) thee, O Lord H136 my God H430, with all my heart H3824: and I will glorify H3513 (8762) thy name H8034 for evermore H5769.
[13] For great H1419 [is] thy mercy H2617 toward me: and thou hast delivered H5337 (8689) my soul H5315 from the lowest H8482 hell H7585.
[14] O God H430, the proud H2086 are risen H6965 (8804) against me, and the assemblies H5712 of violent H6184 [men] have sought H1245 (8765) after my soul H5315; and have not set H7760 (8804) thee before them.
[15] But thou, O Lord H136, [art] a God H410 full of compassion H7349, and gracious H2587, longsuffering H750 H639, and plenteous H7227 in mercy H2617 and truth H571.
[16] O turn H6437 (8798) unto me, and have mercy H2603 (8798) upon me; give H5414 (8798) thy strength H5797 unto thy servant H5650, and save H3467 (8685) the son H1121 of thine handmaid H519.
[17] Shew H6213 (8798) me a token H226 for good H2896; that they which hate H8130 (8802) me may see H7200 (8799) [it], and be ashamed H954 (8799): because thou, LORD H3068, hast holpen H5826 (8804) me, and comforted H5162 (8765) me.

[1] Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I am poor and needy.
[2] Keep my soul, for I am pious, Save Thy servant-who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God.
[3] Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day.

[7] In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.
[8] There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none.
[9] All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name.
[10] For great art Thou, and doing wonders, Thou art God Thyself alone.
[11] Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name.
[12] I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age.
[13] For Thy kindness is great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.
[14] O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them,
[15] And Thou, O Lord, art God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth.
[16] Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid.
[17] Do with me a sign for good, And those hating me see and are ashamed, For Thou, O Jehovah, hast helped me, Yea, Thou hast comforted me!
