Psalm 86
Young's Literal Translation

Tried But Trusting

1A Prayer of David. Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I [am] poor and needy.

2Keep my soul, for I [am] pious, Save Thy servant — who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God.

3Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day.

4Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, For unto Thee, O Lord, my soul I lift up.

5For Thou, Lord, [art] good and forgiving. And abundant in kindness to all calling Thee.

6Hear, O Jehovah, my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplications.

7In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.

8There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none.

9All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name.

10For great [art] Thou, and doing wonders, Thou [art] God Thyself alone.

11Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name.

12I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age.

13For Thy kindness [is] great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them,

15And Thou, O Lord, [art] God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth.

16Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid.

17Do 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!
