Psalm 86 Young’s Literal Translation

A Prayer for God's Continued Mercy

86 1  A Prayer of David. Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I 'am' poor and needy. 2  Keep my soul, for I 'am' pious, Save Thy servant—who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God. 3  Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day. 4  Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, For unto Thee, O Lord, my soul I lift up. 5  For Thou, Lord, 'art' good and forgiving. And abundant in kindness to all calling Thee. 6  Hear, O Jehovah, my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplications. 7  In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.

8  There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none. 9  All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name. 10  For great 'art' Thou, and doing wonders, Thou 'art' God Thyself alone. 11  Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name. 12  I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age. 13  For Thy kindness 'is' great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol. 14  O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them, 15  And Thou, O Lord, 'art' God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth. 16  Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid. 17  Do 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!
