Psalm of the Day – January 21, 2020 (Psalm 86)

1   Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, 
          for I am poor and needy. 
2   Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you; 
          save your servant who trusts in you. 
     You are my God; 3 be gracious to me, O Lord, 
          for to you do I cry all day long. 
4   Gladden the soul of your servant, 
          for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 
5   For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, 
          abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you. 
6   Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; 
          listen to my cry of supplication. 
7   In the day of my trouble I call on you, 
          for you will answer me.

8   There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, 
          nor are there any works like yours. 
9   All the nations you have made shall come 
          and bow down before you, O Lord, 
          and shall glorify your name. 
10  For you are great and do wondrous things; 
          you alone are God. 
11  Teach me your way, O LORD, 
          that I may walk in your truth; 
          give me an undivided heart to revere your name. 
12  I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, 
          and I will glorify your name forever. 
13  For great is your steadfast love toward me; 
          you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14  O God, the insolent rise up against me; 
          a band of ruffians seeks my life, 
          and they do not set you before them. 
15  But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, 
          slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 
16  Turn to me and be gracious to me; 
          give your strength to your servant; 
          save the child of your serving girl.

17  Show me a sign of your favor, 
          so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, 
          because you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
