Psalm 86 or
Coverdale
Inclina, Domine

1Bow down your ear, O LORD, and answer me, *
for I am poor and in misery.

2Keep watch over my life, for I am faithful; *
save your servant who puts his trust in you.

3Be merciful to me, O LORD, for you are my God; *
I call upon you all the day long.

4Gladden the soul of your servant, *
for to you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.

5For you, O LORD, are good and forgiving, *
and great is your love toward all who call upon you.

6Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer, *
and attend to the voice of my supplications.

7In the time of my trouble I will call upon you, *
for you will answer me.

8Among the gods there is none like you, O LORD, *
nor anything like your works.

9All the nations you have made will come and
worship you, O LORD, *
and glorify your Name.

10For you are great;
you do wondrous things; *
and you alone are God.

11Teach me your way, O LORD,
and I will walk in your truth; *
knit my heart to you that I may fear your Name.

12I will thank you, O LORD my God, with all my heart, *
and glorify your Name for evermore.

13For great is your love toward me; *
you have delivered me from the nethermost Pit.

14The arrogant rise up against me, O God,
and a band of violent men seeks my life; *
they have not set you before their eyes.

15But you, O LORD, are gracious and full of compassion, *
slow to anger, and full of kindness and truth.

16Turn to me and have mercy upon me; *
give your strength to your servant;
and save the child of your handmaid.

17Show me a sign of your favor,
so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; *
because you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
