Psalms 86

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 Bow down your ear, O LORD, and hear me for I am poor and needy.

 2 Preserve my soul for I am holy, O you my God, save your servant who trusts in you.

 3 Be merciful to me, O Lord for I cry to you daily.

 4 Rejoice the soul of your servant for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

 5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and you are generous in mercy to all those who call upon you.

 6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer and attend to the voice of my supplications.

 7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon you for you will answer me.

 8 Among the gods there is none like to you, O Lord; neither are there any works like your works.

 9 All nations whom you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and they shall glorify your name.

 10 For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.

 11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; unite with my heart to fear your name.

 12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify your name forevermore.

 13 For great is your mercy toward me, and you have delivered my soul from the lowest Hell.

 14 O God, the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and they have not set you before them.1

 15 But you, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and generous in mercy and truth.

 16 O turn to me, and have mercy upon me; give your strength to your servant, and save the son of your handmaid.

 17 Show me a token for good; that those who hate me may see it, and be ashamed because you, LORD, have helped me, and comforted me.

_______________________________________

1 the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; David was king. There were no assemblies of violent human men who arose to seek his soul. David is speaking of the fallen angels, the demons, in the parallel dimension, whom God uses to afflict and chastise his chosen ones. Notice, (verse 13) he also says: you have delivered my soul from the lowest Hell. The Lord takes a man to the edge of Hell and the brings him back. In the process, a man learns that there is nothing good within himself, that he is a beast before his God: I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before you. Psa 73:22. A man must come to know that only in God is there hope to be delivered from his selfish, Satanic self. This is a necessary humbling process; humility before honor: Before destruction the heart of man is haughty; and before honor is humility. Prov 18:12,15:33.
