Psalm 86

86
Great Is Your Steadfast Love
# [Ps. 72:20] A Prayer of David.
1 # See Ps. 31:2 Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am #Ps. 40:17poor and needy.
2Preserve my life, for I am #See Ps. 50:5 godly;
save your servant, who #See Ps. 11:1trusts in you—you are my God.
3 # ver. 16; Ps. 56:1; 57:1; See Ps. 4:1 Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all the day.
4Gladden the soul of your servant,
for #See Ps. 25:1to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For you, O Lord, are good and #Ps. 130:4 forgiving,
# ver. 15; Ps. 103:8; 145:8, 9; Ex. 34:6; Joel 2:13 abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6 # Ps. 55:1, 2 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
listen to my plea for grace.
7In #See Ps. 77:2 the day of my trouble I call upon you,
# Ps. 17:6 for you answer me.
8There is #[Ps. 89:6; Ex. 15:11] none like you among the gods, O Lord,
# Deut. 3:24 nor are there any works like yours.
9 # Ps. 66:4; [Ps. 22:31; 65:2; Isa. 66:23; Zech. 14:18; Rev. 15:4] All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
10For #Ps. 77:13 you are great and #See Ps. 72:18 do wondrous things;
# Deut. 6:4; Isa. 37:16; 44:6, 8; 1 Cor. 8:4, 6 you alone are God.
11 # See Ps. 25:4 Teach me your way, O Lord,
that I may #Ps. 26:3 walk in your truth;
# [Jer. 32:39] unite my heart to fear your name.
12I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever.
13 # [ver. 5] For great is your steadfast love toward me;
you have #Ps. 30:3; [Ps. 88:6; Ezek. 26:20]delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14O God, insolent men have #Ps. 54:3risen up against me;
a band of ruthless men seeks my life,
and they do not set you before them.
15But you, O Lord, are a God #ver. 5; Ps. 111:4; 112:4; Num. 14:18; Neh. 9:17; Jonah 4:2; See Ps. 62:12merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
16 # See Ps. 25:16 Turn to me and be gracious to me;
give your strength to #See Ps. 116:16your servant,
and save #See Ps. 116:16the son of your maidservant.
17 # [Judg. 6:17] Show me a sign of your #Neh. 5:19; 13:31favor,
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
