Slow to Anger, Full of Chesed
1A prayer of David. Turn Your ear, Adonai, and answer me, for I am weak and needy.
2Watch over my soul, for I am godly. You are my God— save Your servant who trusts in You.
3Be gracious to me, my Lord, for to You I cry all day.
4Gladden the soul of Your servant, for to You, my Lord, I lift up my soul.
5For You, my Lord, are good, and ready to forgive and full of mercy to all who call upon You.
6Give ear, Adonai, to my prayer, listen to the voice of my supplications.
7In the day of my trouble I call upon You, for You will answer me.
8There is none like You among the gods, my Lord, there are no deeds like Yours.
9All nations You have made will come and bow down before You, my Lord, and they will glorify Your Name.
10For You are great, and do wonders— You alone are God.
11Teach me Your way, Adonai, that I may walk in Your truth. Give me an undivided heart to fear Your Name.
12I praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and glorify Your Name forever.
13For great is Your lovingkindness toward me. You have delivered my soul from the lowest part of Sheol.
14God, the proud have risen up against me and a gang of ruthless people have sought my life, and have not set You before them.
15But You, my Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, full of love and truth.
16Turn to me and be gracious to me. Give Your strength to Your servant, and save the son of Your maidservant.
17Make me a sign for good, so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed. For You, Adonai, have helped me and comforted me.
