Brenton Septuagint Translation
Tried But Trusting
1A Prayer of David. O Lord, incline thine ear, and hearken to me; for I am poor and needy.
2Preserve my soul, for I am holy; save thy servant, O God, who hopes in thee.
3Pity me, O Lord: for to thee will I cry all the day.
4Rejoice the sold of thy servant: for to thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
5For thou, O Lord, art kind, and gentle; and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon thee.
6Give ear to my prayer, o Lord; and attend to the voice of my supplication.
7In the day of my trouble I cried to thee: for thou didst hear me.
8There is none like to thee, O Lord, among the god; and there are no works like to thy works.
9All nations whom thou hast made shall come, and shall worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
10For thou art great, and doest wonders: thou art the only and the great God.
11Guide me, O Lord, in thy way, and I will walk in thy truth: let my heart rejoice, that I may fear thy name.
12I will give thee thanks, O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify thy name for ever.
13For thy mercy is great toward me; and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
14O God, transgressors have risen up against me, and an assembly of violent men have sought my life; and have not set thee before them.
15But thou, O Lord God, art compassionate and merciful, long-suffering, and abundant in mercy and true.
16Look thou upon me, and have mercy upon me: give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
17Establish with me a token for good; and let them that hate me see it and be ashamed; because thou, O Lord, hast helped me, and comforted me.
