Listen 2 O
For I am oppressed and needy.
86:2 Protect me, 3 for I am loyal!
O my God, deliver your servant, who trusts in you!
86:3 Have mercy on me, 4 O Lord,
for I cry out to you all day long!
86:4 Make your servant 5 glad,
for to you, O Lord, I pray! 6
and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to you.
Pay attention to my plea for mercy!
86:7 In my time of trouble I cry out to you,
for you will answer me.
86:8 None can compare to you among the gods, O Lord!
Your exploits are incomparable! 9
86:9 All the nations, whom you created,
will come and worship you, 10 O Lord.
They will honor your name.
86:10 For you are great and do amazing things.
You alone are God.
Then I will obey your commands. 12
Make me wholeheartedly committed to you! 13
86:12 O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!
I will honor your name continually! 14
86:13 For you will extend your great loyal love to me, 15
86:14 O God, arrogant men attack me; 18
86:15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God.
86:16 Turn toward me and have mercy on me!
Give your servant your strength!
Deliver your slave! 23
86:17 Show me evidence of your favor! 24
Then those who hate me will see it and be ashamed, 25
for you, O
