Psalms 25

A Psalm of David.

1 To You, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. 2O my God, I have trusted in You; let me not be confounded, neither let my enemies laugh me to scorn. 3For none of them that wait on You shall in any way be ashamed; let them be ashamed that transgress without cause. 4Show me Your ways, O Lord; and teach me Your paths. 5Lead me in Your truth, and teach me; for You are God my Savior; and I have waited on You all the day. 6Remember Your compassions, O Lord, and Your mercies, for they are from everlasting. 7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my sins of ignorance; remember me according to Your mercy, for Your goodness' sake, O Lord. 8Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will He instruct sinners in the way. 9The meek will He guide in judgment; the meek will He teach His ways. 10All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth to them that seek His covenant and His testimonies. 11For Your name's sake, O Lord, be merciful to my sin; for it is great. 12Who is the man that fears the Lord? He shall instruct him in the way which he has chosen. 13His soul shall dwell in prosperity; and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14The Lord is the strength of them that fear Him; and His covenant is to manifest truth to them. 15My eyes are continually to the Lord; for He shall draw my feet out of the snare. 16Look upon me, and have mercy upon me; for I am an only child and poor. 17The afflictions of my heart have been multiplied; deliver me from my distresses. 18Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. 19Look upon my enemies; for they have been multiplied, and they have hated me with unjust hatred. 20Keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed; for I have hoped in You. 21The harmless and upright joined themselves to me; for I waited for You, O Lord. 22Deliver Israel, O God, out of all his afflictions.
