Tehillim 86
1Incline Thine ear, Hashem; hear me; for I am ani (poor) and evyon (needy). 2Be shomer over my nefesh; for I am chasid; O Thou Elohai, save Thy eved that trusteth in Thee. 3Channeni (be merciful) unto me, Adonoi; for I cry unto Thee kol hayom. 4Samei'ach (rejoice) the nefesh of Thy eved; for unto Thee, Adonoi, do I lift up my nefesh. 5For Thou, Adonoi, art tov, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in chesed unto all them that call upon Thee. 6Give ear, Hashem, unto my tefillah (prayer); and attend to the voice of my techinnot (supplications). 7In my yom tzoros I will call upon Thee; for Thou wilt answer me. 8Ein kamocha vaelohim (there is none like Thee among the g-ds), Adonoi; nor are there any ma'asim like Thine. 9Kol Goyim whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, Adonoi; and shall glorify Shimcha. 10For Thou art gadol, and doest nifla'ot (wondrous things); Thou alone art Elohim. 11Teach me Thy Derech, Hashem; I will walk in Thy emes; Yachad (make undivided) levavi (my heart) to fear Thy Shem. 12I will praise Thee, Adonoi Elohai, with all my lev; and I will glorify Shimecha l'olam. 13For gadol is Thy chesed toward me; and Thou hast saved my nefesh from the lowermost Sheol. 14O Elohim, the zedim (arrogant ones, proud, insolent ones) are risen up against me, and the adat aritzim (band of violent men) seek my nefesh; and have not set Thee before them. 15But Thou, Adonoi, art El Rachum and Channun, slow to anger, and plenteous in chesed and emes. 16O turn unto me, and be gracious upon me; give Thy oz (strength) unto Thy eved, and save the ben amatecha (the son of Thy handmaid). 17Show me an ot (sign) for tovah; that they which hate me may see it, and be put to shame; because Thou, Hashem, hast helped me, and comforted me.
