Psalm 86:1–11

Bow down your ear, O Lord, and answer me,   for I am poor and in misery.

Keep watch over my life, for I am faithful;   save your servant who puts his trust in you.

Be merciful to me, O Lord, for you are my God;   I call upon you all the day long.

Gladden the soul of your servant,   for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,   and great is your love toward all who call upon you.

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer,   and attend to the voice of my supplications.

In the time of my trouble I will call upon you,   for you will answer me.

Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord,   nor anything like your works.

All nations you have made will come and worship you, O Lord,   and glorify your Name.

For you are great; you do wondrous things;   and you alone are God.

Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth;   knit my heart to you that I may fear your Name.
