|<< Psalm 86 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Incline your ear, Lord Jehovah, and answer me, because I am poor and afflicted!
2Keep my soul because you are good; deliver your Servant who hopes in you, oh God!
3Show mercy to me, Lord Jehovah, because I shall call to you every day!
4Make the soul of your Servant glad, because to you, Lord Jehovah, I have lifted up my soul!
5Because you, Lord Jehovah, are good and your kindness is great to all who call to you!
6Give ear to my prayer, oh, Lord Jehovah, and hear the voice of my cry!
7I called you in the day of my suffering and you answered me!
8There is none like you, Lord Jehovah, our God, and there are none like your works!
9All the nations whom you have made will come, and they will worship you, Lord Jehovah, and they will praise your Name!
10Because you are great, you are doing wonders; you are God alone!
11Show me your road, Lord Jehovah, and I shall walk in the truth; my heart shall rejoice with those who are in awe of your Name!
12I shall confess to you, Lord Jehovah, my God, from my whole heart and I shall glorify your Name to eternity!
13Because your greatness upon me is great and you have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol!
14God, the evil have stood up against me and the assembly of mighty ones seek for my soul!
15And you, Lord Jehovah God, are compassionate and hovering, patient and abounding in grace and truth!
16Return to me and show mercy to me; give power to your Servant and save the son of your maid Servant!
17Make a good sign with me that those who hate me will see and will be ashamed because you, Lord Jehovah, have helped me and you have comforted me!
