The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


Bow down thine ear, O LORD, and answer me: for I am poor and needy.
    2 Preserve my soul; for I am godly: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
    3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee all the day long.
    4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
    5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in lovingkindness unto all them that call upon thee.
    6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
    7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
    8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
    9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
    10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou alone art God.
    11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
    12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
    13 For great is thy lovingkindness toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of the grave.
    14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and a band of violent men have sought after my life; and they have not set thee before them.
    15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in lovingkindness and truth.
    16 Turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
    17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
