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