A prayer of David.
2 Guard my life,* for I am loyal.+
Save your servant who is trusting in you,
For you are my God.+
5 For you, O Jehovah, are good+ and ready to forgive;+
You abound in loyal love for all those who call on you.+
9 All the nations that you made
Will come and bow down before you, O Jehovah,+
And they will give glory to your name.+
11 Instruct me, O Jehovah, about your way.+
I will walk in your truth.+
Unify my heart* to fear your name.+
12 I praise you, O Jehovah my God, with all my heart,+
And I will glorify your name forever,
13 For your loyal love toward me is great,
14 O God, presumptuous men rise up against me;+
A band of ruthless men seek to take my life,*
15 But you, O Jehovah, are a God merciful and compassionate,*
Slow to anger and abundant in loyal love and faithfulness.*+
16 Turn to me and show me favor.+
Give your strength to your servant,+
And save the son of your slave girl.
For you, O Jehovah, are my helper and comforter.
