Yahweh helps against the impious men (Ps 86:14-86:17)

“O God!

The insolent rise up against me.

A band of ruthless men seek my life.

They do not set you before them.


You are a God merciful and gracious.

You are slow to anger.

You abound in steadfast love.

You abound in faithfulness.

Turn to me.

Be gracious to me.

Give your strength to your servant.

Save the child of your serving girl.

Show me a sign of your favor.

Thus those who hate me may see.

May they be put to shame.


You have helped me.

You have comforted me.”

This psalm ends with David asking God to be merciful and gracious because impious people were after him, seeking his life. Yahweh was slow to anger and full of steadfast love. He wanted Yahweh to save him with his strength. He wanted a sign of Yahweh’s favor. He wanted his haters put to shame. He was relying on Yahweh, who had helped and comforted him.
