A Prayer of David.
1Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am oppressed and needy.
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly;
You are my God; save Your servant
who trusts in You.
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 Have mercy on me, O Lord,
for to You I cry all day long.
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 Gladden the soul of Your servant,
for to You, O Lord,
I lift my soul.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 For You, Lord, are good, and forgiving,
abounding in kindness to all who call on You.
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer,
and attend to my plea for mercy.
7#Ps 88:7; Jnh 2:3 In the day of my trouble I will call upon You,
for You will answer me.
8#Job 35:10; Ps 63:6 Among the gods there is none like You, OLord;
neither are there any works like Your works.
9#Ps 38:6; 18:2 All nations whom You have made
shall come and worship before You, O Lord,
and shall glorify Your name.
10#Ps 42:3; Joel 2:17 For You are great and do wondrous deeds;
You are God alone.
11#Ps 42:5; 43:5 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
that I will walk in Your truth;
bind my heart
to fear Your name.
12I will give You thanks, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
and I will glorify Your name forever.
13For great is Your mercy toward me,
and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14O God, insolent men have risen against me,
and bands of violent men have sought my life;
they have not set You before them.
15But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion and gracious,
slow to anger, and abundant in mercy and truth.
16Turn to me and have mercy on me;
give Your strength to Your servant,
and save the humble son of Your female servant.
17Show me a sign of Your favor,
that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed
because You, Lord, have helped and comforted me.
