Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2 Preserve my life, for I am godly; save Your servant, who trusts in You; You are my God. 3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day. 4 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to You, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.5 For You, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon You. 6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. 7 In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for You answer me. 8 There is none like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like Yours. 9 All the nations You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord and shall glorify Your name. 10 For you are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God. 11 Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name. 12 I give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart and I will glorify Your name forever. 13 For great is Your steadfast love toward me; You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. 14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me; a band of ruthless men seeks my life and they do not set You before them. 15 But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me; give Your strength to Your servant and save the son of Your maidservant. 17 Show me a sign of Your favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because You, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
