Psalms 25


The LORD is Truth and Mercy

A psalm to David.

To you, O  lord, I lifted up my soul. O my God, upon you I have yielded. May I not be disgraced into the eon; nor let [2ridicule 3me 1my enemies]! For all the ones remaining with you in no way shall be disgraced. Let [4be ashamed 1the 2ones acting lawlessly 3without cause]! Your ways, O  lord, make known to me! and [3your paths 1teach 2me]! Guide me with your truth! and teach me that you are God my deliverer! and I waited on you all the day. Remember your compassions, O  lord, and your mercies! for [2from 3the 4eon 1they are]. [3the sins 4of my youth 5and 6my ignorance 1Do not 2remember]! but according to your mercy mention me to yourself, because of your graciousness, O  lord! Gracious and upright is the  lord; because of this he shall establish law for ones sinning in the way. He shall guide the gentle in judgment; he shall teach the gentle his ways. 10 All the ways of the  lord are mercy and truth to the ones seeking his covenant and his testimonies. 11 Because of your name, O  lord, atone my sin! [3great 1for 2it is]. 12 Who is the man fearing the  lord? He shall establish law to him in the way, which he took up. 13  His soul [2in 3good things 1shall be lodged], and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14 The  lord is a fortification of the ones fearing him; and his covenant he manifested to them. 15  My eyes are always towards the  lord, for he shall pull out [2from 3the snare 1my feet]. 16 Look upon me and have mercy on me! for [3an only child 4and 5poor 2am 1I]. 17 The afflictions of my heart were multiplied; [3from out of 4my necessities 1lead 2me]! 18 Behold my humiliation and my toil, and forgive all my sins! 19 Behold my enemies! for they were multiplied, and [4hatred 3with unjust 1they detested 2me]. 20 Guard my soul, and rescue me! May I not be disgraced, for I hoped upon you. 21 The guileless and the upright cleave to me; for I remained with you, O  lord. 22 Ransom, O God, Israel from all his afflictions!
