The Psalter According to the Seventy

Psalm 85

A Prayer of David.

Bow down Thine ear, O Lord, and hearken unto me, for poor and needy am I.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am holy; save Thy servant, O my God, that hopeth in Thee.
3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for unto Thee will I cry all the day long; make glad the soul of Thy servant, for unto Thee have I lifted up my soul.
4 For Thou, O Lord, art good and gentle, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.
5 Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer, and attend unto the voice of my supplication.
6 In the day of mine affliction have I cried unto Thee, for Thou hast heard me.
7 There is none like unto Thee among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like unto Thy works.
8 All the nations whom Thou hast made shall come and shall worship before Thee, O Lord, and shall glorify Thy name.
9 For Thou art great and workest wonders; Thou alone art God.
10 Guide me, O Lord, in Thy way, and I will walk in Thy truth; let my heart rejoice that I may fear Thy name.
11 I will confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Thy name for ever.
12 For great is Thy mercy upon me, and Thou hast delivered my soul from the nethermost hades.
13 O God, transgressors have risen up against me, and the assembly of the mighty hath sought after my soul, and they have not set Thee before them.
14 But Thou, O Lord my God, art compassionate and merciful, long-suffering and plenteous in mercy, and true.
15 Look upon me and have mercy upon me; give Thy strength unto Thy servant, and save the son of Thy handmaiden.
16 Work in me a sign unto good, and let them that hate me behold and be put to shame; for Thou, O Lord, hast holpen me and comforted me.
