God Cleanses Us from Sin
To the director; a psalm to David in [4entering 5to 6him 1Nathan 2the 3prophet], when he entered to Bathsheba the wife of Uriah.1 Show mercy on me, O God, according to [2great 3mercy 1your], and according to the multitude of your compassions! Wipe away my violation of the law! 2 Abundantly wash me from my lawlessness, and [3from 4my sin 1cleanse 2me]! 3 For [3my lawlessness 1I 2know], and my sin [3before 4me 1is 2always]. 4 Against you alone I sinned, and [2the 3wicked thing 4before 5you 1did]; that you should be justified in your words, and should overcome in your judging. 5 For behold in lawless deeds I was conceived, and in sins [2craved strange food 3for me 1my mother]. 6 For behold, [2truth 1you loved]. [3the 4concealed things 5and 6the 7private things 8of your wisdom 1You manifested 2to me]. 7 You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed; you shall wash me and [2above 3snow 1I shall be whitened]. 8 You shall cause me to hear exultation and gladness; [3shall exult 1the bones 2being humbled]. 9 Turn your face from my sins, and [2all 3my lawlessnesses 1wipe away]! 10 [5heart 4a clean 1Create 2in 3me], O God, and [3spirit 2an upright 1renew] in my insides! 11 Do not reel [2from me 1your face]; and [5spirit 3the 4holy 1do not 2take away in return] from me! 12 Give back to me the exultation of your deliverance, and [4spirit 3with your governing 1support 2me]! 13 I shall teach the lawless ones your ways, and the impious [2to 3you 1shall turn]. 14 Rescue me from blood guilt, O God, the God of my deliverance! [2shall exult over 1My tongue] your righteousness. 15 O lord, [2my lips 1you shall open], and my mouth shall announce your praise. 16 For if you wanted a sacrifice, I would have given; whole burnt-offerings you do not think well of. 17 A sacrifice to God is a spirit being broken; [4a heart 5being broken 6and 7humbled 1God 2will not 3treat with contempt]. 18 Do good, O lord, by your benevolence to Zion, and let [4be built 1the 2walls 3of Jerusalem]! 19 Then you will think well of a sacrifice of righteousness offering, and whole burnt-offerings; then they shall offer [2upon 3your altar 1calves].
