A Prayer of David.

Incline Thine Ear O Lord.  Psalm 86(v85)

1Incline thy ear, O LORD, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2Preserve my life, for I am godly;
save thy servant who trusts in thee.
Thou art my God; 3be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to thee do I cry all the day.
4Gladden the soul of thy servant,
for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.
6Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer;
hearken to my cry of supplication.
7In the day of my trouble I call on thee,
for thou dost answer me.

8There is none like thee among the gods,
O Lord, nor are there any works like thine.
9All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord,
and shall glorify thy name.
10For thou art great and doest wondrous things,
thou alone art God.
11Teach me thy way, O LORD, that I may walk in thy truth;
unite my heart to fear thy name.
12I give thanks to thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify thy name for ever.
13For great is thy steadfast love toward me;
thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
a band of ruthless men seek my life,
and they do not set thee before them.
15But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
16Turn to me and take pity on me;
give thy strength to thy servant,
and save the son of thy handmaid.
17Show me a sign of thy favor,
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because thou, LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.
