1 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear me: for
I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve thou my soul, for I am merciful:
my God, save thou thy servant, that
trusteth in thee.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry
upon thee continually.
4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee,
O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For thou, Lord, art good and merciful, and of
great kindness unto all them that call upon thee.
6 Give ear, Lord, unto my prayer, and hearken
to the voice of my supplication.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee:
for thou hearest me.
8 Among the gods there is none like thee, O Lord,
and there is none that can do like thy works.
9 All nations whom thou hast made, shall come
and worship before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify
10 For thou art great and doest wondrous things:
thou art God alone.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and I will walk in
thy truth: knit mine heart unto thee, that I may fear
12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all
mine heart: yea, I will glorify thy Name forever.
13 For great is thy mercy toward me, and thou
hast delivered my soul from the lowest grave.
14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the
assemblies of violent men have sought my soul, and
have not set thee before them.
15 But thou, O Lord, art a pitiful God and merciful,
slow to anger, and great in kindness and truth.
16 Turn unto me, and have mercy upon me: give
thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of
17 Show a token of thy goodness toward me, that
they which hate me, may see it, and be ashamed, because
thou, O Lord, hast helped me and comforted me.
