A Prayer of David.

1Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me, for I am poor and needy. 2Preserve my soul; for I am merciful, O thou my God, save thy slave that trusts in thee. 3Be merciful unto me, O Lord, for I cry unto thee daily. 4Rejoice the soul of thy slave, for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 5For thou, Lord, art good and ready to forgive and plenteous in mercy unto all those that call upon thee. 6Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer and attend to the voice of my supplications. 7In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me.

8Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord, neither is there any other who does thy works. 9All the Gentiles whom thou hast made shall come and humble themselves 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; I will walk in thy truth; firm up my heart that I might fear thy name. 12I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify thy name for evermore. 13For great is thy mercy upon me, and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest part of Sheol. 14O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul and have not set thee before them. 15But thou, O Lord, art a merciful and gracious God, longsuffering and plenteous in mercy and truth. 16O look into me and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy slave and keep the son of thine handmaid. 17Show me a token for good that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed because thou, O LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.
