Psalm 86 Wednesday Morning 3. Monday Compline
Turn your ear, Yahweh, and answer me, * for I am afflicted and needy.
Protect my life, * for I am your worshiper.
Save your own servant * who trusts in you, my God.
Have pity on me, my Lord; * to you I cry all day long.
Cheer the soul of your servant; * to you, my Lord, I lift up my soul.
Since you, my Lord, are good and forgiving, * rich in mercy to all who invoke you,
listen, Yahweh, to my prayer; * attend to my plea for mercy.
When besieged I cry to you; * Oh that you would answer me!
There is none like you among the gods, * my Lord, * nor achievement like yours.
All the nations, * if you act * will come
to prostrate before you, * my Lord, * and glorify your name.
How great you are, * Worker of marvels, * you, God, alone.
Yahweh, teach me your way, * that I may walk faithful to you alone; * teach my heart to revere your name.
I will thank you, my Lord my God * with all my heart * I will glorify your name, O Eternal!
Since your love is great, Most High, * you will rescue me from deepest Sheol.
God, arrogant men have risen against me, * and a council of ruthless men seek my life; * they do not consider you my Leader.
But you, Lord, God the Compassionate and Merciful, * slow to anger, rich in kindness and fidelity,
turn to me and have pity on me, * grant your triumph to your servant; * give victory to your faithful son.
Work a miracle for me, O Goodness, * that my enemies might see and be disgraced.
Yahweh, you yourself * help me and console me!
