1: A Prayer of David. Bow down thy ear, O LORD, hear me: for I [am] poor and needy. 2: Preserve my soul; for I [am] holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. 3: Be merciful to me, O Lord: for I cry to thee daily. 4: Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 5: For thou, Lord, [art] good, and ready to forgive; and abundant in mercy to all them that call upon thee. 6: Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. 7: In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me. 8: Among the gods [there is] none like thee, O Lord; neither [are there any works] like thy works. 9: All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name. 10: For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou [art] God alone. 11: Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. 12: I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. 13: For great [is] thy mercy towards me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell. 14: O God, the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent [men] have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them. 15: But thou, O Lord, [art] a God full of compassion, and gracious; long-suffering, and abundant in mercy and truth. 16: O turn to me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thy handmaid. 17: Show me a token for good; that they who hate me may see [it], and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
