A Prayer of David.
1Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I [am] poor and needy.
2Keep my soul, for I [am] pious, Save Thy servant — who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God.
3Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day.
4Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, For unto Thee, O Lord, my soul I lift up.
5For Thou, Lord, [art] good and forgiving. And abundant in kindness to all calling Thee.
6Hear, O Jehovah, my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplications.
7In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.
8There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none.
9All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name.
10For great [art] Thou, and doing wonders, Thou [art] God Thyself alone.
11Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name.
12I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age.
13For Thy kindness [is] great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.
14O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them,
15And Thou, O Lord, [art] God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth.
16Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid.
17Do with me a sign for good, And those hating me see and are ashamed, For Thou, O Jehovah, hast helped me, Yea, Thou hast comforted me!
